After pact with Uhuru, Kalonzo gets security detail back - 3 months ago, 13 Nov 07:37
Just five days after President Uhuru Kenyatta hinted at an official government position for him, Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka's security detail has been restored at his three homes.
The security team was withdrawn during the heated presidential election last year, when the Raila Odinga-led National Super Alliance (Nasa) was locked in a brutal fight for the State House job with President Kenyatta's Jubilee.
CAR WITH SIREN
Mr Musyoka's handlers Monday confirmed that the former vice-president now has General Service Unit officers guarding his Karen home, and administration police officers guarding his Yatta and Tseikuru rural homes.
Mr Musyoka also received an enhanced mobile security detail, including a car with a siren to clear traffic.
Although he is entitled to the detail by virtue of having served as vice-president, Mr Musyoka's security had become a political weapon, with the police officers being withdrawn whenever he refused to cave in to government pressure.
