What about Matiang’i? Kenyans ask DPP after order on Ruth Odinga

By NAIRA HABIB October 23rd, 2017 2 min read

Kenyans online have called on the the Director of Public Prosecution to also order for the arrest of acting Interior Secretary Fred Matiang’i.

This is hours after Keriako Tobiko had on Monday ordered for the arrest of former Kisumu Deputy Governor Ruth Odinga over mob attacks on IEBC staff in Kisumu last week.

The online community argued that Ms Odinga’s offence was of similar weight to Dr Matiang’i’s utterances last week where he threatened to deploy ‘Chinkororo’ – an outlawed militia group – on anyone who tries to intimidate and stop Kisii’s from voting on Thursday.

Mr Matiang’i was at a Jubilee Party rally where he urged the people to turn up in large numbers.

In the video, he speaks in his Ekegusii language saying; “the one playing does not know the Chinkororo, I am the Enkororo from this place.”

He continued; “and don’t be threatened. You know when a Mugirango is threatened it means the entire Gusiiland is threatened. We are Chinkororo and we habitually beat up the Maasai, so nobody can threaten us.”


Here are the reactions of Kenyans online.
