Migori Woman Representative Dr. Pamela Odhiambo has insisted that Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i is carrying out his objective as stipulated in the constitution
despite concerns that the minister has aligned himself with ODM leader Raila Odinga
ahead of next year’s elections

According
to Dr. Odhiambo, CS Matiang’i is upholding the law and working to ensure the handshake
between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga is upheld.

“I
don’t think I have read anywhere that they said we will support Raila Odinga. They
applauded and supported the handshake and the peace thereof. I think it is good
to support anything that would make their work easier, the peace so that there
is nobody fighting anyone and therefore their work is almost achieved,”
Odhiambo said on Citizen TV’s Day Break show.

Odhiambo
similarly insisted that Matiang’i is part of the current regime as such his role
in upholding the law should not be questioned.

“These
ministers are actually appointed by the government of Uhuru Kenyatta whom they
are supporting and the initiative of peace, it’s the president’s initiative.
What Kenyans really need is that reassurance of peace that they will always
have tomorrow,” Odhiambo said.  

“I
want to see peace in this country and Matiang’i can ensure that everybody is
peaceful including vulnerable persons. I don’t think we should start by making
statements and interpreting things in a way that suits us to start making the
country feel like there is something very wrong and according to me everything
is good,” she added.
