Matiangi's Hilarious Explanation after Texting Wetangula Nonsense

Matiang'i explains why he sent a rude message to Wetangula

In the text, Wetangula was expressing concern over the minister’s directive banning the National Super Alliance (NASA) Anti-IEBC demos.

The NASA principal asked Matinag'i to seek legal advice following his orders noting that it was unconstitutional.

"Why don’t you engage a lawyer to advise you on the constitutionality of your actions, utterances, and threats to innocent Kenyan? You have no power or capacity to ban lawful protests and or demos,” the Senator texted the CS.

However, a no-nonsense Matiang'i replied by one word – Nonsense - a reply that has since gone viral on social media with a section of the public criticising the minister.

Speaking to Citizen TV, the CS noted that he has no apologies to make for his response to Wetangula and had an interesting explanation why he texted so.

He insisted that he felt Wetangula’s text was nonsensical and that there was no other English word to express the same.

"I keep asking myself the question, you know you think we have come from heaven. We are human beings those of us who are in public office. We too have rights to express ourselves, So when I express myself why should there be a problem.

"What Wetangula told be was nonsensical it is as simple as that. I mean nonsense is an English word which means what you are saying is not sensible and it is there in the dictionary so that you use it to express yourself when someone is telling something that does not make sense.

"There is no crime in that it is an expression, an English word," Matiang'i emphasised.
