Residents of South Mugirango constituency, the rural home of Interior CS Fred Matiang’i have come out in large numbers to condemn the continued ‘insults’ to the CS by their area MP Silvanus Osoro.
Osoro has been heard demeaning the CS in political rallies across the country and accusing him of undermining the position of deputy president William Ruto. The MP is allied to the William Ruto led team. The over 500 elders who met in Gekuba village in Etago last week dared the MP to continue insulting the CS if he wanted to taste their wrath. They protested that demeaning and insulting of the CS by their own MPs portrayed a bad picture to the community.
Led by Joash Ondora, the residents gave the MP an ultimatum to come out in public and apologize to Matiang’i and the Gusii community failure to which he will be disowned. Vincent Marube said that an insult to Matiang’i was an insult to Uhuru Kenyatta who appointed him into the cabinet. He asked those with issues with the CS to face the president and register their displeasure with him.
