According to The Sunday Standard, George Kinoti achieved notoriety and infamy nearly in equal measure during his four and a half years as the Director of Criminal Investigations. Kinoti, who formerly held the reins and was the one pointing accusing fingers, suddenly finds himself embroiled in dispute. He is now aiming at the incorrect side of the weapon.
There were reportedly expectations that George Kinoti would be granted a one-year extension, but this didn’t happen after President William Ruto declared that he had received resignation letters from George Kinoti and IG Mutyambai.
But things are changing in the wake of George Kinoti’s resignation. According to the explanation, while pictures of Hilary Mutyambai shaking hands with President William Ruto at State House had surfaced, there were none of George Kinoti and the leader of the nation. The two police chiefs allegedly handed their resignation letters to State House at this time.
The Sunday Standard said that a source familiar with the circumstances behind Kinoti’s departure claimed that the former DCI director may have been persuaded to step down. Even George Kinoti’s close friends reportedly expressed disbelief upon learning of his departure

“In 2015 when my friend Makri passed on, I was seated next to the Deputy President. I was minding my business when he reached out to console me. One thing I noticed about him is that he read every page about the programme and he asked me questions that I should have known and I was caught flat-footed”, Martin stated.
