History of King’ori Mwangi:
Before being the police boss in the National Service.
He was the provincial police boss in Nairobi, Mombasa and Western.
Kenyan Magazine has established that the former police spokesperson had undergone an operation but his health kept on deteriorating.
Mr King’ori joined the National Police Service with a first-class honours degree and trained alongside Secondary School graduates.
He is amongst the few officers who clawed their way up the ladder of the police service very fast.
It took him only nine years from a civilian to a gazetted officer (Senior Superintendent).
A senior police officer who spoke to Nairobi News in confidence said that Mr King’ori was always on top of his class in every police course that he studied.
“He was a man who never wanted to be seen as a Very Important Person (VIP) and used to speak the truth. Equally, he was very generous and many people took advantage of that,” said the officer.
The only time he ever spoke in public was when his wife, Mercy Wangiri, passed away in February 2019.
Ms Wangiri, who was a lecturer at Nyeri National Polytechnic, died of cancer back in 2019.
