    Former Kenya Anti Corruption Commission director Aaron Ringera, former Police boss Major General (Rtd) Hussein Ali and the director of Police Training College Peter Kavila have been sensationally named in an alleged cover up of drug trafficking investigations.

    Imenti Central MP Gitobu Imanyara tabled documents in Parliament Wednesday detailing how a junior police officer, who had uncovered the activities of serious drugs cartels at the Coast, was fired from following orders from powerful forces.

    Another police officer, who was in charge of criminal investigations at the port of Mombasa, a Mr Abdullahi was shot dead by criminals suspected to have links to powerful drug cartels, the MP claimed.

    Mr Imanyara told a shocked Parliament that the orders to sack the officer, SSP Mohammed Godana Jarisa emanated from Major Gen (Rtd) Ali and were conveyed to him by Mr Kavila, who was the director of Police Operations at the time.

    Imenti Central MP Gitobu Imanyara tabled documents in Parliament Wednesday detailing how a junior police officer, who had uncovered the activities of serious drugs cartels at the Coast, was fired following orders from powerful forces.




    Former Kenya Anti Corruption Commission director Aaron Ringera, former Police boss Major General (Rtd) Hussein Ali and the director of Police Training College Peter Kavila have been sensationally named in an alleged cover up of drug trafficking investigations.

    Imenti Central MP Gitobu Imanyara tabled documents in Parliament Wednesday detailing how a junior police officer, who had uncovered the activities of serious drugs cartels at the Coast, was fired following orders from powerful forces.

    Another police officer, who was in charge of criminal investigations at the port of Mombasa, a Mr Abdullahi was shot dead by criminals suspected to have links to powerful drug cartels, the MP claimed.

    Mr Imanyara told a shocked Parliament that the orders to sack the officer, SSP Mohammed Godana Jarisa emanated from Major Gen (Rtd) Ali and were conveyed to him by Mr Kavila, who was the director of Police Operations at the time.

    SSP Godana had stumbled upon 24 containers of hard drugs, probably cocaine disguised as rice imported from Vietnam as he conducted investigations into drug cartels at the Port of Mombasa.

    Responding to a statement by Prime Minister Raila Odinga on the threat of international narcotics trade in Kenya, the Imenti Central legislator told Parliament how a shaken SSP Godana had approached him to spill the beans after he was relieved of his job after uncovering the drugs haul and forced to go into hiding for fear of his life.

    "SSP Godana was brought to my office by a journalist and his own security detail and narrated to me what had happened," Mr Imanyara told MPs while displaying pictures of the 24 containers the officer had impounded.

    The MP recounted how SSP Godana was later instructed by Mr Kavila to stop the investigations, apparently on instructions from the then Police Commissioner. He was ordered to report to a new station, a far flung police outpost but learnt from his informers that he would be eliminated if he dared report there. This forced him to go underground for fear of his life.

    The Imenti Central MP further revealed how the then KACC director, Aaron Ringera failed to take any action when the matter was reported to him.

    It is only after the US ambassador Michael Ranneberger disclosed last week that they had banned four senior government officials and a leading businessman from setting foot in America that SSP Godana came out of hiding and forwarded his dossier to new KACC director PLO Lumumba.

    The legislator also accused the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) of abetting the trade in narcotics by clearing a consignment of 3,000 bags of Vietnamese rice to be imported to the country only for them to turn out to be hard drugs.

    Mr Imanyara demanded that the government offers protection to SSP Godana saying he was willing to disclose his whereabouts to the PM.

    Responding, Mr Odinga promised full government investigations into Mr Imanyara's dossier and promised that the government will accord SSP Godana total security.

    "In fact, I've just been instructing the assistant minister for security seated here to take up the matter with the police commissioner immediately, " the PM told the House, pointing at Ndhiwa MP Orwa Ojode.

    He added that the government would offer similar protection to other police officers, who had been punished for fighting drug trafficking in the country if they volunteered information to authorities saying top security officers were major players in the illicit trade.

    "As a government we have to go for the big boys if we are to save our children from this hard drugs menace," Mr Odinga said.
