This was announced by President William Ruto while unveiling his cabinet on Tuesday.
The president said that he had received the request from Mutyambai slightly over a month after the police service announced he had taken a break due to health issues.
“I have after discussing with Mr Mutyambai and in consideration of his service to our nation and his health situation, accepted that Mr. Mutyambai will proceed on terminal leave.”
Mutyambai had six months left on his contract as Inspector General of Police.
He was admitted to the Aga Khan Hospital’s High Dependence Unit after falling sick in August.
A few weeks ago, he was moved to the general ward after his health stabilised.
Mutyambai was appointed Police IG by former President Uhuru Kenyatta in April 2019.
He replaced Joseph Boinnet who was picked from the National Intelligence Service (NIS) as David Kimaiyo’s replacement.
