DAILY POST: I will crush you just like any other cartel, tenders are not land that you can grab – MATIANGI now tells RUTO over new police uniforms




Wednesday December 19,
2018 
– The war between Deputy President William Ruto and
Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiangi, over the lucrative tender to supply
new police uniforms has spilled over to the public after months of silent
wrangles
.

Ruto reportedly asked
Matiangi to award the multi-billion tender to other people after it was
reported that the National Youth Service (NYS) ran out of the required fabric
to make the new police uniforms.
It is said that the DP
wanted to use other people to land the lucrative tender that would have added few
more billions into his pocket at the expense of local textile industries.
This comes even as
President Uhuru Kenyatta, during the unveiling of the gears by the police,
instructed the Ministry of Interior to make sure they source the materials
locally.
However, speaking at Kenya Institute
of Curriculum Development, Matiangi firmly stated that the uniforms would
be made by NYS and thus removing the juicy morsel from Ruto’s mouth.

The CS vowed to crush all cartels in his Ministry regardless of who they are and what positions they hold in Government or society.

 “Listen
to me very carefully.”
“We will not import police uniforms, go
and write another 10 headlines.”

“We will not import police uniforms
from any country.”
“We have to promote the local textile
industry,” said Matiangi.
