Away from the mucky political scenes and on Wednesday, drama and confusion surrounded the Kenya Prison’s Service after President Uhuru ordered the removal from office of the former Kenya Prisons Service Commissioner-General, Wycliffe Ogalo unceremoniously.
Kamiti Prison Commandant Charles Mutembei was neither spared as he was also arrested by the Anti-Terror Police Unit detectives after three convicted terrorists controversially escaped from Kamiti Maximum GK Prison on Monday.
It was a daring escape that took the nation by surprise, coming in the wake of three successive terror activities in our neighboring country Uganda.
However, it was Ogalo’s sacking that seemed to have irked a number of leaders allied to the ODM party, who felt the decision was not well informed.
Preliminary investigations suggested the escape from arguably the most secured maximum prison in the country was abetted by laxity and incompetence, but the investigating officers have not ruled out an inside job between the prison’s officers and the dangerous convicted terrorists.
Do you think the escape was just an unfortunate break free or a well-planned inside job between the officers and the three terrorism convicts?
