Prisons Boss Wycliffe Ogalo arrested Over Kamiti Escape

Sacked Commissioner-General of the Kenya Prisons Service Wycliffe Ogalo was on Wednesday arrested over the Kamiti Maximum Prison escape.

Ogalo was arrested at Magereza House alongside two top officers in charge of manning the Kamiti prison.

They were whisked away to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters by officers from the Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU).

This came after President Uhuru Kenyatta fired Ogalo as the Kenya Prisons boss following a breach in security at the Kamiti Maximum Prison which led to the escape of three terror convicts.

President Kenyatta, hence, appointed and witnessed the swearing-in of Ogalo’s successor, Brigadier (Rtd) John Kibaso Warioba.

The Head of State also directed Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i to spare no resource in pursuing and capturing the Kamiti escapees.

He urged all State investigative agencies to bring every person found to have been involved in the prison break to full account.

The president further directed the State Department of Correctional Services to begin disciplinary action against all prisons staff who were on duty when the security breach occurred; this includes redeployment and/or immediate suspension of those found culpable
