IG Boinnet, DCI Kinoti at risk of losing jobs

Inspector General of Police (IG) Joseph Boinnet and Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti are at a real risk of losing their jobs.

According to new court documents, the IG and DCI may be ejected from office if the High Court does not suspend its decision in lawyer Miguna’s case.

The duo risk losing their jobs if the court upholds the decision to revoke the lawyer’s deportation.

“The applicants being state officers currently occupying the offices of Inspector General of Police and the Director of Criminal Investigations respectively, are at a real risk of being removed from office in view of the decision of the High Court, unless the decision is suspended and or stayed pending the lodging, hearing and determination of the intended appeal,” the court papers read in part.

High Court judge Justice Luka Kimaru last week declared the deportation of Miguna to Canada illegal and ordered the Government to deposit his passport with the court within seven days.

He further noted that at the time of the deportation, Boinnet and Kinoti were in contempt of court orders.

The Opposition coalition accused Government of violating the Constitution saying its dictates allows dual citizenship.

NASA leaders demanded that the National Resistance Movement (NRM) self-proclaimed general Miguna be brought back to the country.

The leaders led by Siaya Senator James Orengo said Miguna must be brought back to his motherland adding that the NASA legal team is pursuing the matter in court to ensure he is returned.

Orengo said the Constitution allows any Kenyan who is a citizen by birth to remain Kenyan unless one denounces the citizenship.
