My family was on police aircraft, so what?

14 April 2015, 15:31 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - As far as explanations go, Police airwings boss Rogers Mbithi has pulled in a few as he tried to explain the use of an aircraft set for terror duty on a private mission.

Mbithi Tuesday admitted that his daughter in law and her two sons was on flight 5YPOL from Mombasa, which was later on used to ferry Recce squad officers to Garissa to respond to a terror attack at the Garissa University College.

He says however, that the fact that they were on the plane was not an issue since it was already on a scheduled flight to Mombasa and back.

He stated that the pilot, a Senior Superintendent James Kabo and Inspector Mutai were on a training flight to Mombasa and that it was a complete coincidence that his family was also coming back to Nairobi.

" The flight arrived in Nairobi on time as scheduled," Mbithi argued.

However, it is common knowledge that the Recce squad officers were at the Wilson Airport way before then and that they awaited the arrival of the plane from Mombasa before leaving for Garissa.

Mbithi also said that the reading instruction to Mombasa was done on that route as it was bumpy and good training for personnel.

He also confirmed that he had explained the whole process to Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett.

" I have spoken to the IG and explained the whole scenario," he added.

The IG and Mbithi have been under pressure the last few days after it emerged that the Recce squad officers arrived at the scene of the Garissa attack nearly 10 hours to after it begun, due to the lack of transportation.

148 people died in the Garissa attack.
