Kenyans call out Matiang’i after ordering arrest of two suspects who claimed he was battling COVID-19 in ICU

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i rubbed Kenyans the wrong way after ordering the arrest of two suspects who had posted on Facebook that he was battling COVID-19 in the Intensive Care Unit.

The DCI detectives arrested 33-year old freelance journalist Isaac Kibet Yego and 19-year old Emanuel Kosgei in Ngeria Eldoret with the detectives stating that they were the suspects of authoring and publishing false information about the CS.

The DCI disclosed that the operation resulted in the confiscation of a laptop and two mobile phones which were suspected to have been used in the dissemination of the information.

“The DCI wishes to inform, urge and warn any person who out of malice or sheer morbid hatred for another person to desist from committing any act or attempt against the law as provided under the Communication Act that: “a person who, by means of a licensed telecommunication system, sends a message or other matter that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character; or sends a message that he knows to be false for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another: Commits a crime and will suffer punishment as provided by the law,” read part of the warning.

As he ordered the investigation into the matter, Matiang’ i was reported to have stated that his family was had gone through pain after the news broke.

Kenyans were, however, not impressed by Matiang’i whom they accused of trying too much to show his power.

They argued that Kenyans all the time mock higher-ranking people in the government than him but they do not make it a big deal.

Some went on to give examples of how former President Mwai Kibaki has been killed on social media many times as well as Canada-based exiled Lawyer Miguna Miguna attacks President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM party leader Raila Odinga but they never say a word.
