Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Governments Dr. Fred Matiangi is under fire after Uasin Ngishu County leadership led by Governor Jackson Mandago launched a petition to stop his new move.
In his post, Governor Mandago said that the County leadership has raised concerns over Dr. Matiangi's plans of introducing new Administrative units without proper consultations.
The County boss complained the interior CS didn't consult them and the public in the plans to create new divisions and locations in Uasin Ngishu County.

In his statement, the furious governor said that the activities revolving around the plans should stop until all stakeholders including the County Assembly members, Members of Parliament, the public and all others are consulted.
He claimed that the review of new boundaries is essentially the work of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission saying that the public should be well informed about the one done by the Ministry of Interior.
Matters the petition, the governor hinted that all Uasin Ngishu County elected leaders have signed it and has been delivered to the Ministry of Interior and Coordination of National Governments.
