The second in command was ordered by the Interior Cabinet Secretary to cease applauding President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration when the head of state is there only to change tune during his political gatherings. He advised him to cease opposing the same government in which he is a member and to quit playing two roles: opposition and governance simultaneously.

"Today, I'd like to make something very obvious. People have been asking me whom I will vote for in 2022. I'd want to state that where the president and Raila Odinga will be is entirely where I'll be. I'm not going to change my mind, and I'm urging you all to back me up by supporting Baba here,” Dr. Fred Matiang'i said n the local dialect.
