- A video captured CS Matiang’i publicly declaring himself a member of the outlawed group ‘Chinkororo’.
- The CS also said he can order police not to take action and let other people get beaten up.
- The letter stamped “Recieved’ by NCIC has put Matiangi on the spot over ethnic incitement.
Interior CS Fred Matiangi is now on the radar of the National Cohesion & Integration Commission ( NCIC) over alleged incitement remarks against the Kalenjin community in Kisii.
According to a letter by City law firm Ongoto and Co. Advocates addressed to the NCIC, CS Matiang’i on 10th and 11th October while at Makairo, Nyasumi, Obwari, Magwagwa, Riamanoti areas incited the Kisii community against the Kalenjin.
” We have been instructed by several members of the public to lodge a complaint against Matiangi for inciting the public to violence.” Part of the letter reads.
The Interior CS is accused of contravening article 75 of the Constitution which talks about the conduct of state officers.
The Constitution states that a state officer shall behave, whether in public and official life, in private life, or association with other persons, in a manner that avoids–
- (a) any conflict between personal interests and public or official duties;
- (b) compromising any public or official interest in favor of personal interest; or
- (c) demeaning the office the officer holds.
Evidence attached to the letter that has been officially received by the NCIC details how CS Mating’i publicly declared himself a member of an outlawed group in the region called “Chinkororo”.
The CS is said to have warned the Kisii not to allow outsiders to visit the region while referring to Deputy President Dr. William Ruto’s visits that were recently blocked by police.
The letter gives details of how the CS said he is in charge of internal security and hence can order police officers not to take action and let other people go be beaten up.
