Kenya: Five senior officials of Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) have been sent on compulsory leave to pave way for investigations into operations at the organization.

The head of Public Communication Division Mulei Mutua said the action has been taken following consultations between the Ministry of Environment, Water and Natural Resources and KWS management.

The suspended officers are William Waweru, (Deputy Director Finance and Administration), Julius Kimani (Deputy Director Security), Tom Sipul (Deputy Director Corporate Services), Wesley Isanda (Head of Finance) and Christopher Oludhe (Head of Procurement).

“Dr. Richard Lesiyampe, the Principal Secretary in charge of the State Department of Environment and Natural Resources, will on Friday at 10:00 am, address a press conference at KWS headquarters in Nairobi to shed more light on a raft of changes taking place at KWS,” Mr Mulei said.
