Meet former Uhuru's bodyguard working in a quarry after being suspended

Shocking

President Uhuru Kenyatta

A recce squad officer identified as Nichols Langat, who was once attached to President Uhuru Kenyatta’s security team now works at a quarry in Kericho.

Langat stated that he was suspended in 2016 after he reported back on duty late after visiting his sick wife.

According to the 28-year-old, he was made aware of his suspension through a letter that was sent to Ainamoi Police Station in Kericho County.

The officer revealed that he crushes stones for a living now to sustain his drinking problem after he sunk into depression.

The young law enforcer became depressed after his wife who had been diagnosed with throat cancer passed on in the same year he lost his job.

The widower was left to cater for his two-year-old daughter, a task that he found difficult and resorted to drinking as reported by Nation

Langat explained that the two years of alcohol that led him to be an addict, destroyed his life.

“I have gone through hell due to drinking and I feel that I’m tired of this life.

“I would love to go back to my normal life and get back my job if possible,” remarked the Recce officer.

Langat remains an officer

He however explained that is still an officer as he was not dismissed which meant he could not get another job elsewhere.

The former security detail highlighted that he was forced to do jobs like digging of pit latrines and the quarry work to fend for the daughter and his old parents who he takes care off.
