Miguna supports Uhuru in rare message

This was after his speech at Ken Matiba's memorial

He added that Matiba was also among those detained without trial and tortured by the president’s mentor retired President Moi, the same way he was detained and tortured.

“For the first time, Mr. Despot  you are right: Matiba was among a few Kenyan elite who exploited their public positions to become billionaires. And yes, he was detained without trial, tortured and maimed by your TUTOR, MOI, the same way you have detained and tortured me.” He said.

“Ken Matiba epitomized what Kenya is supposed to be. He was committed to hard work and was willing to sacrifice all his property and wealth for the sake of the country. Kenya will miss him but we will never forget him. ,” said President Uhuru Kenyatta.
