Munyambu was interdicted on July 2009 to pave way for investigations into claims of embezzlement of funds when he served as the Kiambu police commander.
He was reinstated in 2011 and posted to Police Headquarters but was not assigned to any section. He was posted to what police call 'classroom' which is an office where officers just report to work but are not assigned any duties.
He was in December 2011 appointed the Garissa police chief. Munyambu was recalled back to the 'classroom' in May 2012 following allegations by the National Security Intelligence Service that he had allowed terror a German terror suspect Emrah Erdogan to sneak into Kenya from Somalia.
According to police sources, Munyambu allegedly granted Edorgan police escort from Garrissa to Bangaley where he sneaked into Nairobi.
Edorgan's colleague, Majid Najjar, was arrested and prosecuted for being in the country illegally. Last Friday, Metito announced that the Senior Superintendent of Police had been dismissed together with 10 other junior officers who among other things escorted Edorgan.
