Why Uhuru sacked Kimaiyo

Nairobi - Why did President Uhuru Kenyatta sack Kenya Airports Authority KAA chairman David Kimaiyo?
Corruption and mismanagement it is, according to insiders.
The former inspector general of police is said to have fallen out of
favour with the government with increasing cases of corruption at KAA.
KAA was last year embroiled in a major bus tendering scam that saw senior managers including managing director Lucy Mbugua fired.
President Kenyatta himself openly ridiculed the KAA bosses and called for swift action to be taken on the culprits.
Further, The Kenya Aviation Workers Union has been calling for the disbandment of
the authority’s board, claiming directors were not working in the best
interest of the parastatal.
They petitioned the President to make changes to the KAA leadership and get rid of those trying to kill the parastatal.
Kimaiyo has been replaced by former Defence chief Julius Karangi.
