Two officers on Secondment duties violating the law by participating in court martials proceedings?

Two officers

Two officers, despite being on secondment and official United Nations mission duties they continue to force themselves to serve in Court-Martial instead of recusing themselves a good proof being a gun for hire.

Massive investigations shows that there is a lot of rot within the Kenya Defense Force evidenced at the Court-Martial.

The two officers continue to frustrate and harass the juniors from either a point of knowledge or ignorance.

COL. E.O. Okello ( 19654) and Maj M.M Saha ( 21070) are on secondment and mission duties in the United Nations , In New York and Central Africa Respectively.

According to our evidence that we obtained from Milimani High court, Okello admitted that he was out of the country and he requests to be connected virtually so that he can participate as senior member in the proceedings contrary to the Kenya defense standing order.

‘’ My name is Col. Emmanuel Okello, I am the senior sitting member for this court martial. I am based in Nairobi but I got a seconddment job at the UN Headquarters here in New York from then I request to be allowed to continue attending virtually, with me are two other sitting members, I can see Maj Saruni virtually and also we had Lt Safari a few minutes ago,” he told the court as recorded in court papers that are in our possession.
According to the Kenya defense forces standing order DEFSO 2 edition of 2015 chapter TWO (2) PAGE 2-2 Officers on the supernumerary pool (S/poo) are not supposed to be given tasks by KDF until they are posted back from where they have been seconded of attending courses or the United Nations Missions. The two continued to appear virtually in the contravening of the said law.

The documents in our possession as indicated in a document says that, “Supernumerary pool (S/POO)” . Refers to a list maintained at DHQ officers in Unit/formation exceeding the approved establishment and those officers who are not available for deployment either because they are attending a long course or are attached to establishment outside the Kenya Defense Forces.

Officers on Supernumerary pool are administered by either respective services,” read the documents in parts.

Our investigative reporter managed to get the list of KDF officers who have suffered through the hands of the COL. E.O. Okello (19654) and Maj M.M Saha (21070) and the names are composed of: Col. Thomas Kiptum Poghisio, Major. Joel Kenyakisa, Major Joseph Muriuki, Sergent Robert Kipkemoi, corporal Joshua kemboi kirwa, Ganner Antony Kimeiywa Leboo.

Among the list three officers have been wrongly convicted under the leadership of COL. E.O. Okello (19654) and Maj M.M Saha (21070) and his other sitting members who among them are part of our dossier.

Our efforts to reach COL. E.O. Okello (19654) and Maj M.M Saha (21070) on phone for comments few days ago were not successful as they fail to receive our calls hence making to miss the right of reply.

It is surprising that the KDF employs well trained and qualified prosecutors as specialists in the force. Currently Col Simon Yator and Col Henry Mureithi Mugiira are the lead and are behaving against their oath of legal profession.
