  • “The case of Dr. Fred Matiang’i, he is in charge of security. He talks every day on TV doing politics and yet he is in a very sensitive docket,” said Khalwale, adding: “when then he goes publicly and campaigns for Raila Odinga, he is no longer the minister for internal security. He is either a campaign agent or the chief campaigner of Raila Odinga.”

Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale now wants Cabinet Secretaries Fred Matiang’i, Mutahi Kagwe, and Eugene Wamalwa to leave office over their recent public endorsement of Raila Odinga’s as Kenya’s next president.

Khalwale, who was speaking to Citizen TV on Thursday, accused the three of abuse of office.

“It is common sense that those three ministers are breaching what would be expected of them… if they have chosen to be politicians, they should do the honorable thing; vacate their positions because they are key sensitive positions then go and start espousing matters of politics,” said Khalwale.

Khalwale further criticized Matiang’i, saying the Ministry of Interior is very sensitive for its boss to plunge into partisan politics.

“The case of Dr. Fred Matiang’i, he is in charge of security. He talks every day on TV doing politics and yet he is in a very sensitive docket,” said Khalwale, adding: “when then he goes publicly and campaigns for Raila Odinga, he is no longer the minister for internal security. He is either a campaign agent or the chief campaigner of Raila Odinga.”

“He should quit and do the needful instead of us paying him to do a different job.”

The Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i, Health CS Mutahi Kagwe, and their Defence counterpart Eugene Wamalwa publicly endorsed ODM leader Raila Odinga’s presidential bid on October 23, saying he is the most suitable candidate to safeguard and continue President Uhuru Kenyatta’s development agenda.

“Kama ni hii mambo ya siasa, when my president takes a position, I queue behind my president,” said CS Matiang’i.

“We’re appointed to assist the president…so akisema handshake yake na Raila italeta Amani, ilete maendeleo, sisi kama watu wake wa mkono tunaunga,” stated CS Wamalwa.

On his part, Kagwe said: “This cooperation is what we expect to see us through so that the projects that ae currently going on will not stop when the president stops, kwa sababu hiyo uhusiano ndio itaendelea mbele.”
