CS Matiangi's Response On The Reward On Arrest Of Kamiti Escapees Sparks Reactions Today

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i has today responded on the promise that was placed for anybody who will provide any relevant information that will help in the arrest of the three escapees from Kamiti Maximum Prison.

According to reports, the three jailbirds; Musharaf Abdalla, Mohamed Ali Abikar and Joseph Juma Odhiambo, were arrested in a bush within Kitui County following a tipoff from members of the public.

While addressing the media at Kamiti prison where the three criminals were returned after their recapture, Interior CS Fred Matiang'i brushed off a question by Citizen TV journalist Hassan Mugambi about the Ksh.60 million reward.

The journalist asked CS Matiangi if the Kenyans who offered the information that led to the arrest of the three terrorists will be rewarded as it had been promised.

In response to the question, the Interior CS said: "No...no...no, we are not going there at the moment. Let us not be speculative about this. We are going to work on this meticulously as my colleagues have said."

He digressed further and went ahead to address the measures the government is set to take to deter such an incident in future.

"The reason why we are here with ICT CS Joe Mucheru is that we have looked at the entire ICT system in this place and a partnership between us and the ICT Ministry will immediately reconfigure this because there are certain lapses," Interior CS said.

These responses has sparked reactions among Kenyans who agued that the government is changing their mind on the issue.
