Interior CS Fred Matiang'i resurfaced after his Ministry dispelled reports that he was in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) after contracting Covid-19.
The CS detailed that the report was devastating and had affected his family.
"I feel for my family. My wife and children have their own lives but were subjected to false reports. They are private citizens paying the price of me being in limelight," Matiang'i lamented in an interview with the Daily Nation on Friday, July 24 at his Harambee House office.
Matiang'i added that the plot was orchestrated by his detractors who were out to make him deviate from actualizing President Uhuru Kenyatta's agenda.Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i inspects a guard of honour during a passing out parade for 1,224 officers in December 2019File
He also disclosed that he had filed a report with the police and had ordered the Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti and the Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to launch an investigation into the issue.
The CS directed them to apprehend the rumour mongers who had tried to humiliate him in public.
"I will share my status with the public if I contract the virus. I have been tested three times because we (government officials) are highly exposed," the CS stated.
Government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna shared his test results on Friday, July 24. Oguna announced that he had tested positive for Covid-19.
"I am receiving medical care and responding well to treatment at an isolation and treatment facility," he stated.
The government spokesperson added that contact tracing was ongoing and his family was okay.Government Spokesman Cyrus Oguna (left), Acting Ministry of Health Director-General Patrick Amoth (centre) and Health CS Mutahi Kagwe (right) during a press conference at the ministry’s headquarters in Nairobi on March 30, 2020.The Standard
