PS for Interior and Internal Security has revealed they have a plan to counter hate messages against them by allies of DP William Ruto in the Mt Kenya region. Speaking to NTV on Wednesday night, Kibicho said civil servants especially those in the Ministry of Interior had become soft targets of politicians because they lacked platforms to defend themselves.
”These people who throw dirt at us should not think we do not have stories to tell around them… We will tell those stories at the right time,” the PS said.
For the past few days, Kibicho and CS Fred Matinagi have come under intense fire by William Ruto’s allies who claim the two are frustrating the DP, with express instructions from President Uhuru whom they share an office with. Even though Tanga Tanga leaders are fingering their docket over the botched traveling of Ruto to Uganda, Kibicho denied the allegations saying the president’s deputy had no necessary documents needed for him to travel out of the country, given he was a civil servant.
”Necessary travel documents are made available at the point of departure. I don’t know whether or not they were made available. And whether some people are exempted – that is not for me to know. The responsibility to check such documents rested with Immigration officers at the point of departure.
Earlier, Kapsaret MP Oscar Sudi claimed Immigration officials informed them that their passports could not be stamped and that they had to seek approval from the Head of Public Service.
“I informed the DP, who called the senior Immigration official to inquire why this was happening. The officer told the DP he had received instructions from above. The DP then called the senior Interior officer who didn’t answer but called back and denied giving instructions, instead saying it was an official at the Head of Public Service,” he said.
