• He also asked that tenders allegedly awarded to top military generals by retired president Uhuru Kenyatta must also be cancelled.
• Ahmednasir insisted that the culture of generals getting awarded tenders must also be stopped.
City lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi has penned a three-point message to the new Chief of Defence Forces Francis Ogolla.
According to the lawyer, the new CDF should ensure that all military staff attached to ministries are taken back to military barracks.
He also asked that tenders allegedly awarded to top military generals by retired president Uhuru Kenyatta must also be canceled.
Ahmednasir insisted that the culture of generals getting awarded tenders must also be stopped, adding that President William Ruto is not after buying loyalty like his predecessor.
"Congratulations Gen Francis Ogolla on your appointment as Kenya's new CDF. You deserve it. Please take 3 pieces of advice from me. 1, return your boys/girls embedded in ministries back to the barracks. 2, cancel all the tenders issued to top generals by Uhuru especially.
"The surveillance one. Stop the Culture of General Tenderpreneurs, William Ruto isn't insecure to buy loyalty of your Generals with lucrative tenders. 3, have an eye on history," the lawyer tweeted on Saturday.
Ahmednasir noted that only two of Ogolla's predecessors were serious 4-star Generals, including Mohamud Mohamed and Daudi Tonge.
He said there was little to say about the others because they played to the tune of the government of the day.
"History has little to say about the rest. General, make a name and let history record your achievements!"
His words come hours after Ogolla was sworn in as the new CDF at State House Nairobi.
His appointment came as a surprise to many having been dragged into a political succession controversy putting his job on the line.
Speculation was rife that he was likely to be dropped after being adversely mentioned to be among the high-ranking state officials who were at the Bomas National tallying center during the August 9, 2022 presidential contest.
Former IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati alleged that the VCDF was among the top National Security Advisory Council (NSAC) officials who visited him to plead with commissioners to “moderate” the results in favour of the Azimio candidate Raila Odinga or force a run-off.
