“We did not fire him!” that’s the statement that seems to come from the police after claims emerged that Wetangula’s bodyguard had been dismissed from the service.
Simon Lonyang’ a police constable and Moses Wetangula’s bodyguard became the subject of discussion after causing an altercation at the Supreme Court on Monday, 28th August.
He was trying to force his way alongside his boss while in possession of a firearm, something which was deemed unlawful.
This led to him being whisked away to Central Police Station where the OCPD Robinson Thuku stated that he would be arraigned in court the next day for causing disturbance. What however followed the next day, Tuesday, 29th August was that he was dismissed from the service.
