Interior CS Fred Matiang'i has hit back at Deputy President William Ruto for attacking Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai.
Ruto sensationally claimed that Mutyambai was the most incompetent IG in the world while addressing a delegation of the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI) at Karen.
"The only concern from where we sit is the police. We do not doubt the capacity of the police to handle the situation, we doubt the command. We have the most incompetent IG in the world.
“His incompetency may not necessarily play out when things are working but when things get ahead and we need some decisions to be made, the IG cannot make the decision,” Ruto stated.
In a rejoinder, Matiang'i says that Ruto is frustrated with Mutyambai because he declined to give business/tenders to his friends.
According to the Interior CS, Mutyambai declined to purchase police boots from Ruto's friends at a hiked price.
"Hillary Mutyambai anatusiwa bure, shida yake ni alikataa kununua police boots for Sh13,000 from Ruto's friends, akanunua from local manufacturers for Sh2,900," Matiang'i said while in Nyamira County on Friday,July 1.
