Ministry of Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i has distanced himself from a post attacking President Uhuru responding to his inpeachment claims.
According to the post-it had alleged that CS Fred Matiangi had informed that he is ready to resign after the impeachment pressure adding that his post should be given to someone else and that President Uhuru Kenyatta should be petitioned on the same.
"I am aware there is a social media trend asking for my sacking, sponsored by tribalists in government who have always been uncomfortable with a Kisii holding the post I held. If a certain region feels this post belongs to them, let them petition His Excellency to give it to them and I can go work with my people in other capacities. I will not die doing a thankless job," read the Fake post.
"Fake News!" Fred Matiang'i has said.
The remarks from the Ministry follow after the recent pressure by a section of Tangatanga MPs and those from the ODM threatening to impeach him for unlawfully using the Police during elections.
Among leaders attacking the CS are Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi and who had said that "President Uhuru Kenyatta's team has been planning to impeach Ruto but I want to tell you one thing, impeaching the DP is not as easy as you think. But let's leave that now, I want to tell you this, we're going to impeach Matiang'i, in the next two weeks, Matiang'i must go home."
On the ODM side, Edwin Sifuna who is the Party Secretary-General had informed that for President Uhuru Kenyatta to secure his legacy, then he must impeach the CS.
