PS in Nkaissery’s ministry handed jail term in a shocking court ruling

The Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet has been directed to arrest Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho after he was found guilty in a court ruling.


Just the other day we heard MPs were fighting at the office of Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery and now the ministry’s PS has been sentenced by the high court.

PS Karanja Kibicho has been sentenced to three sentenced to three months in prison a shocking court ruling handed down today by high court judge.

Kibicho was handed the jail term for contempt of the court; he repeatedly failed to appear before the court and he disobeyed previous orders in a compensation case of a torture victim.

The Interior PS had been ordered to pay Kes 2.6 million in compensation to Nyayo House torture victim, Michael Danson Mahugu.

Mr. Mahungu moved to court 13 years ago and the court recently awarded him the Kes 2.6 million which was to be paid by the Interior Ministry.

High court judge George Odunga directed the Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet, to immediately arrest the defiant Interior PS.

It however remains to be seen if Kibicho will be arrested as thrown in prison as it’s not the first time a court has ordered the police to arrest him but nothing happened afterwards.

Kibicho is a living evidence of blatant impunity, he’s simply untouchable.
