Miguna narrates chance meeting with Matiang’i, throws shade at former CS

By Wangu Kanuri January 10th, 2023 2 min read

Kenyan lawyer and politician Dr Miguna Miguna has claimed that he met and had a brief chat with former Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i in Karen.

Dr Miguna made the claims on his Twitter handle, although he fell short of divulging details of the said meeting.

“I bumped into Matiang’i at the Karen Country Club today in the morning and I asked him, ‘Are you still alive?” He responded, ‘Yes, I am not dead,’ part of Miguna’s tweet read.

Without substantiating, Dr Miguna also made remarks implying that the former Cabinet Secretary should by now be serving time in jail.

“He would be serving a jail term of 550 years in countries governed by the rule of law!” Miguna tweeted.

Dr Matiang’i has maintained a low profile ever since he exited office after President William Ruto became president.

On the other hand, Miguna has maintained his abrasive stature on Twitter. He once claimed he had sued Matiang’i for millions of shillings for the role the former Cabinet Secretary played in having him forced into exile in 2018.

The controversial lawyer-cum-politician was forced into exile for his participation in the mock swearing-in of ally-turned-foe Raila Odinga as the “people’s president” after the bitterly disputed presidential election of 2017.

Among the key arguments used by the State to exile, him was that he had obtained Kenyan and, later on, Canadian citizenship at a time when Kenya did not support that type of citizenship.

Dr Miguna only returned to the country in late October 20, 2022 after President Ruto was sworn-in as the fifth President of the Republic of Kenya.

Weeks before his return, Dr Miguna had warned Dr Matiang’i, and former Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho to contact their lawyers before he lands into the country.
