NIS Boss Noordin Haji Accused of Being Raila, Uhuru’s Spy in Ruto Government

1 min read

A month after beginning his position, Noordin Haji, the director general of the National Intelligence Service (NIS), is no longer trusted by some of the lawmakers close to President William Ruto. 

The leaders assert that Haji may be their snitch in the administration because of his connections to opposition leader and former president Uhuru Kenyatta. 

The former director of public prosecutions took over the reins at the intelligence service on June 14 after the end of General Philip Kameru’s tenure. 

During their last meeting at State House in Nairobi, the Kenya Kwanza leaders alleged that Haji could be spying for the opposition saying that he has been attempting to mediate a cease-fire between the president and Raila. 

Besides Raila, the leaders claim Haji also has close ties with the retired president. 

It should be understood that Haji has been spotted meeting with Raila Odinga and Uhuru. He should decide whether he is an Azimio politician or a public servant,” Taifa Leo quoted one of the MPs present during the meeting as having said.

The paper further reported that some of the lawmakers wanted Haji’s conduct debated by Senate and National Assembly over what they termed as complacency in the opposition demonstrations.

President Ruto on May 16 nominated Haji to assume the NIS position. He was sworn in June 14, 2023 as the new Director-General of the National Intelligence Service (NIS).
