The no-nonsense Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has finally revealed the dirty business the Deputy President William Ruto’s Turkish affiliate Harun Aydin was engaging in while in Kenya.
Responding to the parliamentary committee queries in Mombasa, the tough-talking CS revealed some of the unlawful businesses the DP’s ally who was deported back to Turkey was doing.
The interior CS was tasked by the parliamentary committee to explain the reason behind the deportation of the Turkey businessman.
Matisng’i revealed that Harun Aydin’s papers indicate that he was working in the energy sector but his contract was not legitimate.
According to the interior CS, the Turkish businessman was issued with a work permit on 25th June 2021 and was later flagged by security agencies for his local travels and being associated with people dealing in money laundering.
Matiang’i further explained that Harun Aydin’s track activities were a characteristic of individuals involved in money laundering, and there is a correlation between money laundering and terrorism.
Matiang’i also revealed that Harun’s passport shows he has left Kenya twice without a stamp of arrival, which indicates he was sneaked into the country.
He noted that Security agencies in Kenya were in communication with Turkey and agreed on mutuality to deport Harun Aydin back to his country.
Matiang’i also clarified on claims that the Kenyan Government had apologized noting that the government has not issued any apology since the countries are governed by its laws.
The CS also noted that the phone numbers Harun Aydin used on his work permit were going through with a different person’s identity.
“We were ready to charge him in a court of law, but we also have a mutual relationship with the Turkish Government,” Matiang’i stated.
