GSU officer reinstated two years later

Newton Chebii a General Service Unite Officer who had been discharged his duties in 2016 has been re-instated.

Mr. Newton who was then deployed at Kibera Welfare Canteen alongside his colleague joined Strathmore University without informing his superiors.

At Strathmore University, Newton took Law Degree classes without informing his superiors at the police headquarters.

Confirming the story is the office of the Ombudsman who said that Newton and his colleague were termed as deserters after failing to appear following deployment.

It was at this point that the two stopped receiving salaries forcing them to seek intervention of the Inspector General.

A response came back saying it was all a communication breakdown and the matter will be solved.

His colleague received his dues unlike him who received nothing and was later suspended on the basis of being disrespectful to his seniors.

Newton resolved by reporting the matter to the National Police Service Commission leading to his reinstatement in November 2017.

The promise that he would get his full salaries and arrears passed unsuccessfully  prompting him to approach the office of the Ombudsman who have resolved it.
