Could Uhuru’s Longtime Bodyguard Be Planning Retirement After Dramatic Removal From His Security Team?



Rumours are rife that Uhuru’s long serving and trusted bodyguard could be contemplating early retirement after being removed from the former president’s security team in the recent swap that saw Uhuru’s security details drastically reduced.

According to rumors circulating from friends, Kiragu who has been Uhuru’s bodyguard since his days as an MP is supposedly considering quitting the job. The bodyguard has dramatically been ordered by the government to detach from the team. The move that comes at a time when government has intensified fight against the former head of state now leaves him with a smaller number of guards.

Its unclear why the government has gone as far as withdrawing his most loyal and longtime guards as they’re always the closest to him.

It’s the first time in Kenya’s history that security details of a former president has been withdrawn unceremoniously. Now Uhuru doesn’t have the choice of selecting guards of his own choice and if the government wanted to spy on Uhuru then this I a gap.

This move comes at a time when Uhuru is leading peace talks in DRC where he frequently visits the war-torn country and naturally would need more bodyguards for his own security.

In the heights of the election campaign, President Ruto and Uhuru had bad blood that at one point Ruto claimed there was a plot to harm his family and he called Uhuru out saying he shouldn’t kill his kids.

Uhuru now has half the number of bodyguards Moi and Kibaki had in their retirement.
