Fred Matiang’i, the current minister of the interior under President Uhuru Kenyatta, has spoken publicly about his accomplishment and expressed gratitude to the people of Kenya for allowing him to serve in a number of different capacities.
The outgoing CS claims that FGM, teen pregnancies, and violence against women were all reduced during his tenure.
He is confident that the changeover to Ruto’s administration would proceed smoothly.
“Despite immense criticism, scorn and false accusations of scheming to manipulate and interfere with the General Election, our sector put up a stellar and professional performance in supporting the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to conduct the General Election,” he stated.
“The just-concluded Presidential petitions and the subsequent ruling did not indict our expansive team across the country any wrongdoing. This affirms our collective professionalism and due diligence to duty. Equally, it is my conviction that those tasked with facilitating the smooth transition to the next administration will exhibit similar professionalism,” he said.
“I want to thank him for bestowing his trust in me. I am humbled by the privilege to serve in his Cabinet in four different ministries throughout his tenure. I can never thank him enough for this honour,” he concluded.
