Speaking while meeting with Kenya private sector alliance in Nairobi on Monday, the CS urged the business moguls to desist from bankrolling campaigns of Politicians in exchange for protection the moment they take over power.
He said his has a list of rich entrepreneurs who are visiting leafy suburbs at night to donate money to politicians.
"I have received the list of corporations funding these crooks. Most of them are tax evaders and allegedly want to protect themselves," he said.
He added that some of the businessmen are renown tax evaders and therefore would want favours.
The CS's Tough statement to the CEO's and rich businessmen elicited reactions from netizens with some accusing Matiangi of double speak.
Some like Shemegi wondered why the CS is very tough now but was quiet when rich individuals called Mount Kenya foundation supporting Azimio leader met him last year promising to support his presidential bid.
Shemegi: what about mount Kenya foundation billionaires funding Raila?
TKR: you supported 10 billionaires in Raila Camp Kenyan leaders lacks morality.
