On Wednesday afternoon, Dedan Kimathi’s family came out to protest the government’s decision to withdraw the freedom fighter’s widow security detail and driver.
The family said that they were not consulted before the decision was made.
Although many Kenyans agreed with the state’s decision, many still couldn’t quite understand why the government would decide to withdraw the innocent woman’s security detail.
A reliable source has now informed CNYAKUNDI.COM that that the government was pushed to withdraw the guards and driver after the family started misusing the privilege.
The source went on to say that Dedan Kimathi’s granddaughter in particular was notoriously misusing the driver and the bodyguards assigned to her grandmother Mukami Kimathi by the state. It is believed that Evelyn was using state protection during her shopping and drinking sprees around the city.
It became so bad that the bodyguards complained to their seniors saying that they were sometimes being kept out late outside nightclubs waiting to take Evelyn home. Even members of the public confessed to frequently seeing the lady and the guards in shopping malls.
The source also added that Mukami Kimathi hardly ever used the guards since her old age greatly limited her movement.
These claims forced the government to furiously recall the security detail and driver.
