The Last Man Standing? Uhuru’s Top Security Appointee Survives Ruto’s Axe

He has seen his colleagues axed by President William Ruto, who has now fully managed to stamp his authority in the management of the country after succeeding his predecessor, Uhuru Kenyatta.

On Tuesday, National Intelligence Service Director General Major General ( Rtd) Philip Kameru became the latest top Uhuru appointee to be purged. His position is set to be taken by the outgoing Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji.

Former Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai became the first one to fall. He was followed by DCI boss George Kinoti. Then came former Deputy Inspector General of Police in-charge of the Kenya Police Service wing, Edward Njoroge Mbugua. His position has been taken by Ex-GSU Commandant, Douglas Kirocho Kanja.

Then there is former Chief of Defence Forces, General ( Rtd) Robert Kariuki Kibochi. He has since been succeeded by General Francis Omondi Ogolla.

But Deputy Inspector General of Police in-charge of the Adminstration Police, Noor Gabow is still staying put. He has managed to defy all the odds and survive the Ruto axe that has so far claimed several top security chiefs.

A career policeman, Gabow succeeded Samuel Arachi in 2018. Prior to that, he served as Police Training College, Kiganjo Commandant.

By being appointed as AP boss, Gabow became the first Kenya Police Service officer to head the Adminstration Police wing of the National Police Service.

Considered one of the most effective cops in the country, Gabow is in President Ruto’s good books. Otherwise, he would have been sent packing by now.
