As the ripple effect of Monday’s blocking of the deputy president from flying to Uganda continues to be felt, the Interior ministry principal secretary Karanja Kibicho implicated Mathira member of parliament and leading tanga tanga member Rigathi Gachagua in one of the worst atrocities ever committed in the country, and dating back to his days when he served in the Public Administration under former president Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi.
Kibicho was responding to claims that he was behind Monday’s humiliating blocking the of deputy president from flying to Uganda. He was speaking yesterday on ntv to Salim Swaleh in an interview that was aired during the station’s 9 PM news.
Kibicho said that he wasn’t involved in anyway with the process of civil servants seeking clearance before traveling, and didn’t have such powers in any case. He told Salim that the country now operated under a new constitution in which such powers could no longer be exercised at will.
Referring to Rigathi’s past, he said that Rigathi served in the Public Administration back when administrators ruled with an iron fist, and probably believes that it’s still how things operate. He then sensationally claimed that Rigathi had presided over reckless excesses in areas such as Molo and Kiambaa.
It is worth noting that Molo witnessed some of the worst tribal clashes during the Moi era, and they were alleged to have been done with the complicity of the government in order to achieve a political goal.
The MP first tasted power when he was appointed the assistant secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs and National Heritage.
He had earlier undergone paramilitary training at the Administration Police Institute that prepared him for a career in the government.
He left the ministry in 1990 after he was recruited as a Cadet District Officer and transferred to the office of the Head of Civil Service where he worked as a personal assistant.
In 1995, he was named the district officer in charge of Kakamega before moving to Ngarua within Laikipia in 1997.
After spending 10 years in public service, he quit and ventured into business, registering his first firm Ridor Group of Companies.
