- Matiang’i had jetted out of the country a day before being summoned by the EACC officials
- Deputy President has dared Matiang’i to jet into the country and face his cases
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has scoffed at former CS Fred Matiang’i, labelling the latter a coward and daring him to jet back into the country.
Gachagua who was speaking at a rally on Friday, March 3 noted that the former powerful CS should return to Kenya and honor summons by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
According to the DP, Matiang’i is paranoid and flew to the United Kingdom to escape the summons and avoid answering questions over an alleged raid at his Karen home.
He dared Matiang’i to follow in the footsteps of Kenya Kwanza politicians who obeyed summons when they were allegedly persecuted by the previous administration in which the former CS was a powerful figure.
“He was called to record a simple statement but he decided to flee. Didn’t I tell you that these people were cowards?
“They came after us before the elections, but did we run? They arrested me and took away our property and we stayed put,” Gachagua explained.
