NAIROBI – Kenya´s President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday announced the resignation of  intelligence chief Major-General Michael Gichangi “on personal grounds.” 

There was no immediate replacement announced, but President Kenyatta’s spokesman Manoah Esipisu said Gichangi had been asked to stay on until a new appointment is made.

State House described M. Gichangi’s career as “distinguished and colourful” through four decades in Kenya’s Defense forces, where he rose through the ranks to Major-General.

He was appointed to head Kenya’s intelligence gathering in 2006 for a five-year term. His term in office was renewed in 2011.
