Speaking at the Coast region while sending his condolences to the family of General Nkaissery, Mr. Odinga wondered how fast President Uhuru Kenyatta had made the appointment.

The Former Prime Minister noted that it was shocking how the appointment was made before the President sent a message of condolences to the family of the late CS.

"This is, of course, a critical time in terms of security dockets and I have seen that Matiang'i has been appointed.

What has shocked me is that before they sent messages of condolence the first action was to appoint somebody in an acting capacity. That is doing things upside down. But well Jubilee is the Government they can appoint whoever they want in the docket," Odinga said during a press briefing.

On Saturday morning President Kenyatta sent his condolences at State House, Nairobi, before informing the country that Matiangí would be the acting minister in the docket.

"I take this opportunity to offer my personal condolences to his family, wife & children in particular, to his friends and the Maa community. Today is a sad day for Kenya and all our people. We have lost a Gallant Officer. An Officer who has for the most part of his life served with total dedication and love for his country," Mr Kenyatta said before announcing the appointment of CS Matiang'i.

Mr. Odinga's remarks elicited an array of reaction on social media with a section terming them as unwarranted.
