"I have taken this morning the decision of appointing Dr Fred Matiang'i as the acting minister of internal security to ensure that there is no vacuum.

"I wish to assure Kenyans and all our friends of good faith that Kenya is secure," Kenyatta said.

The Head of State eulogised Nkaissery as a personal friend and colleague.

"On one of his last notes we spent discussing his great passion which was Kenya's preparedness for the junior athletic which is meant to commence in the next few days," the President remarked.

Kenyatta sent his condolences to the family and urged Kenyans to maintain peace and unity, something he said Nkaissery fondly known as the General always preached.
