In Summary

  • Earlier on Tuesday, Senator Moses Kajwang said that the Committee had written an invitation letter to CS Matiangi on July 27.
  • He later said they had been informed that the CS had other committments and would not make it.
  • It has since emerged that Matiang'i did not receive the letter.

Interior CS Fred Matiangi has rubbished claims by a Senate Committee that they invited him to respond to allegations from his Education counterpart over the Ruaraka land saga.

Speaking to Citizen Digital on Tuesday, Matiangi was categorical that he could not have snubbed a session that he was not invited to.

The CS further cautioned that such utterances were part of a smear campaign against him.

Earlier on Tuesday, Senator Moses Kajwang said that the Committee had written a letter to CS Matiangi on July 27.

“It was an invitation not a summon. We have been informed he has other commitments,” he said.

“Why should I go before a committee that has already concluded its report.”

However, the Interior CS maintains that the claims are not factual.

Education CS Amina Mohamed, who took over from Matiang’i, had told the Senate CPAIC that compensation for the Ruaraka land was not procedural.

The Senate Committee is expected to release its report on the Ruaraka land saga next week.
