A senior police officer has sued Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet for transferring him from Police Headquarters in Nairobi to Central region.

In documents filed at the Employment and Labour Relations Court, George Gitonga is protesting the IG's January 30, 2018 decision to redeploy him.

Through his lawyer Anne Thungu, Mr Gitonga, who is now the Kerugoya Officer Commanding Station, said the redeployment had caused him great prejudice and humiliation, and his career progression was likely to be ruined.

He said he would suffer irreparably unless the court intervened.
