Uhuru revokes Michael Gichangi’s appointment, replaces him with Amos Ntimama
President Uhuru Kenyatta has revoked the appointment of former NIS boss Michael Gichangi as chairperson of the Private Security Regulatory Authority.
Uhuru replaced Gichangi with Amos Ntimama, the son of the late Maa leader and former minister William Ntimama.
The President said in a gazette notice dated November 26 that Ntimama’s appointment took effect the day before.
Gichangi had been appointed on October 2 after resigning from the National Intelligence Service following security lapses in 2014.
It was not clear why the spy chief decided to throw in the towel but State House Spokesman Manoah Esipisu said it was on personal grounds.
-Major-General Michael Gichangi joined the Kenya Airforce in 1977.
-Major-General Michael Gichangi was Director-General of the National Intelligence Service.
-Rumours was that NIS boss Michael Gichangi was SACKED for telling President Uhuru Kenyatta that CORD’s Referedum was UNSTOPABLE!
-A young Gichangi joined the Kenya Air Force as a flight cadet in 1975 and later trained as an F5 pilot in the US in 1976, where he was the top foreign student in his class.
-During his time as a fighter pilot, he was feted as the first African and Kenyan to fly more than 1,000 hours in the F5. He was awarded a Distinguished Conduct Order for valour in the course of duty.
