On Wednesday the family of freedom fighter Dedan Kimathi protested the government’s decision to withdraw his widow’s Mukami Kimathi’s security detail and driver without notice.
The family said that there was no official communication from the government before the withdrawal.
Kenyans on social media were quick to react to the developing story with a lot of them supporting the government’s move to withdraw the widow’s security detail saying that nobody was after the old lady’s life hence the security was highly unnecessary.
Here is what Kenyans online had to say.

What???? She had a security detail and driver? For what and at whose cost?

In all honesty, does she really need a driver and security guard?

Security ya nini

Come on Kenyans……!!!! i think the widow only requires a driver surely. Iiiii mambo na security details haisaidii. Kwani hata huyu shosh anaitaji security details ya nini sasa.

Why does she need security detail from the govt for? Is she under any threat? Are the families of the other freedom fighters accorded the same?
Good or bad move; quite indifferent.
Her being given security is not safeguarding anything that would add value to our economy.
