Interior CS Fred Matiangi is once again on the spot over alleged ethnic incitement remarks he made while on a tour of Kisii last week.
The alleged ethnic slur is now at the center of National Cohesion and Integration Commission, NCIC investigation.
NCIC is in receipt of several ethnic slur complains attributed to the Interior CS.
City law firm Ongoto and Co. Advocates has written to the NCIC seeking actions be taken against Fred Matiangi for allegedly inciting members of the Kisii community against the other communities living in Kisii town.
The letter reads in part:
We have been instructed by several members of the public to lodge a complain against Matiangi for inciting the public to violence.
It’s unfortunate and totally unacceptable that a Cabinet Secretary in charge of security and who is supposed to ensure that there is public order can be the one breaking the law with impunity” reads the complain letter to NCIC in part.
The complain to NCIC alleges that Fred Matiangi on diverse hours on the 10th and 11th held several meetings Kisii and without any permit and in total disregard of Covid- 19 protocols.
During these meetings, the complain letter alleges Matiangi with alot of impunity incited Kisii against other communities.
The letter alleges Matiangi is captured on tape declaring himself as ‘Ekororo’ meaning he is the member of the outlawed Chinkororo group.
In the same video, the letter alleges Matiangi is heard boasting that he controls the security apparatus and can order the police not to take any action and let some people beaten up.
The letter in NCIC possession also alleges of another video where Matiangi incites the public not to let outsiders come to Kisii and do politics.
The law firm has now threatened to take action against the interior CS if NCIC fails to act.
It remains to be seen whether the NCIC will take action against the larger than life Super CS Matiangi for ethnic Incitement.
The NCIC has been on the spot over alleged bias in executing its mandate with critics accusing the Commission of targeting DP Ruto allies.
Politicians allied to Kieleweke wing are said to have gotten away with incitement and hate speech on sereral occasions.
The letter stamp “Recieved’ by NCIC now puts Matiangi on the spot over ethnic incitement and puts into question President Uhuru Kenyatta’s commitment to building bridges.
