Police officer injured in the line of duty receives KES 615K compensation

09 June 2015, 10:18 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - A former police officer, Patrick Munyao Kitonyi will now be able to undergo a surgery for injuries sustained while in the line of duty in Nairobi in July 2009.

Munyao received KES 615 405 as compensation for the injuries following the intervention of the Commission on Administrative Justice (CAJ), popularly known as the Office of the Ombudsman in a complaint against the National Police Service.

The National Police Service had delayed the police officer’s compensation in spite of advice by the medical board that the officer urgently needed further surgery.

Elsewhere, a support staff at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) got a sigh of relief after she was successfully reinstated back to work after CAJ intervened in a complaint on unfair dismissal.

Rose Kanya Muthoni had been unfairly suspended from work on grounds that she had aided another employee to steal the hospital property.

“Muthoni had been charged in court with the offence of stealing, but was acquitted for lack of evidence.

“However, the hospital had failed to consider the acquittal when determining her matter administratively and proceeded to terminate her service in October 2013,” CAJ said in a statement on Monday.

She thereafter lodged a complaint at the commission seeking reinstatement.

CAJ made an inquiry into the matter which culminated in a review of the complainant’s case by KNH board of management and the eventual reinstatement.
