Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery has threatened to sue the National Super Alliance leaders for linking him to the Mt Kenya Foundation. The CS has issued the alliance with a one-week ultimatum for them to provide evidence that he is part of the Jubilee affiliated foundation, failure to which his lawyers will take action.
“You remember they made outrageous statements against general Nkaissery being part of mount Kenya foundation. I have no clue of what the foundation is, in fact I read about the foundation in the media the same day they accused me,” said the CS.
The Interior CS expressed his disappointment with NASA leadership saying they should not be making unsubstantiated claims.
“I want them to tell me whom I have spoken to and when. I don’t know who these people are, and they should be prepared for this battle,” warned General Nkaissery.
NASA politicians have threatened to sue seven government officials including General Nkaissery for being involved in politics, which is against the law. The CS said that he has a mandate to tell Kenyans what the government is doing.
“I am not a public officer, I am in the executive, whatever the President tells me to tell the citizens I will do,” the CS added.
The Interior CS is calling upon the National Cohesion and Integration Commission among other agencies to take legal action against NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga. The presidential candidate is being accused of inciting Kenyans in one of his political rallies.
“For somebody who wants to be the president of Kenya, to say you people you should refuse other people to come to your community, that amounted to incitement and hate speech,” Nkaissery said.
The Cabinet Secretary defended the government against misuse of public funds claims and accused the opposition of peddling lies. He accused the opposition of being noisemakers who should leave those who are working for the citizen to do so, in peace.
“The difference between the opposition and government is that, government is working 24 hours in a day, opposition officials are making noise 24 hours, that’s the problem,” he concluded.
