However upon doing our fact-check, we can confirm that the clip was shared on the media on July 30th, 2018 when the Tourism CS Balala was attacking the former KWS Service Board Chairman Dr. Richard Leakey for blaming him over the death of 10 rhinos while being translocated to the Tsavo National Park.

According to Dr. Leakey, they warned the CS early against translocating the wild animals but their words fell on deaf ears. Balala told off his critics that he will not resign over the death of the 10 rhinos and those who were telling him to do so should instead go to hell.

"It is President Uhuru Kenyatta who appointed me...I don't want to comment about rhinos now but I can tell them to go to hell," Balala told his critics.

Balala is one of few outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta's Cabinet Minister's thirsting for Cabinet posts in Ruto's Cabinet.
