Good morning Kenyans.
We are almost at the end of a week that could be described by one word, mind blowing.
Interior CS Fred Matiang’i became the talk of the town after he brought a gun to a knife fight with Deputy President William Ruto.
Matiang’i appeared before a Parliamentary committee to give the reason behind the recent changes made to Ruto’s security.
The tough talking CS ended up more than disclosing the reason for the reshuffle and instead, revealed how the DP is the most guarded second in command in Kenya’s history.
He pointed out that DP Ruto was allocated 257 police officers to guard him.
The revelation sparked an uproar from both MP’s and Kenyans on how one man could enjoy such protection.
This brings up the big question, was it fair for Ruto to complain of the security reshuffle after the CS’s exposé?

DP Ruto allied politicians were left fuming after Matiangi’s damning revelation.

Omanga remarked that the purpose of the meeting with MP’s was to give the reason for the security detail change and not revealing the DP’s guarded property.
These leaves one wondering, was Matiang’i right to reveal the former URP leader’s well protected property?
