United Democratic Alliance (UDA) Chairman Johnson Muthama has broken his silence on Interior CS Fred Matiang'i and Health CS Mutahi Kagwe's involvement in Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga's campaigns ahead of 2022 general election.
In his remarks, Muthama has noted that the law prohibits civil servants from engaging in politics while in office unless they resign if interested in pursuing elective seats.
The UDA Chairman has stated that the Cs' should remain Non-Partisan and devote their Energies to serving the Government of the day and treating all the Citizens equally irrespective of their Ethnic, Political and Economic Background.
"Why is @fredmatiang'i & @MutahiKagwe_cs engaging in @RailaOdinga campaigns yet its against the COK 2010? The law prohibits Civil Servants from engaging in politics while in office & if any of them is keen on pursuing elective politics he/she is required to resign at least six months before the elections to avoid conflict of interests. Therefore, they should remain Non-Partisan and devote their Energies to serving the Government of the day and treating all the Citizens equally irrespective of their Ethnic, Political and Economic Background," UDA Chairman Johnson Muthama said.
