Council of Governors⚠ Protests Withdrawal of Lonyagapuo's😒 Security

  |   Kenya News

The Council of Governors has condemned the withdrawal of West Pokot governor John Lonyagapuo's security.

His bodyguards were recalled on Friday after he stormed a police roadblock and freed a boda boda rider who had been arrested for allegedly flouting traffic rules.

In a statement, CoG said there has been no communication as to why the officers were removed.

"The withdrawal of the Governor’s security demonstrates a clear conflict between the discharge of public duties and fulfilment of personal interests, whether directly or indirectly," read a statement.

"The Inspector General of Police must take action, and seek to formally communicate to the Governor and immediately replace the officers. This must not be repeated ever again."

The governors defended their colleague, saying 20 roadblocks had been mounted between Kesegon and Kainuk in West Pokot.
