Cartels are threatening me – Matiang’i says amid probe by DPP

Things are getting hot

The Interior CS insisted that he would not be cowed by unnamed people who were attempting to blackmail and hinder his fight against corruption and impunity.

“Whatever the level of blackmail. I am not ready to slow down. Impunity must be fought and be won at whatever cost,” he said during a public fundraiser at Nyabisase Secondary School.

Without elaboration, the CS accused “cartels” of using social media, parliamentary committees and the mainstream media to malign his name.

“They have tried to fight me on social media, in parliamentary committees and some have resorted to using certain journalists in the mainstream media but I won’t shy away. I will fight standing to the bitter end,” Matiang’i said.

A businessman, Meshack Onyango Dehay, who accused the CS of being part of the fraud has since been adopted as a state witness.

On Friday, a fake news post was widely circulated on social media claiming that the DPP was seeking to arrest Matiang’i with regard to the Ruaraka land fraud.
