Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi has skipped the joint parliamentary committee probing how suspect sugar found its way into the country. This is the second time Matiangi has failed to show up before the National Assembly’s joint Committee on Agriculture and Trade after he skipped the Monday session.

In a letter dated June 26 to the committee, the CS requested the committee to schedule the grilling as he was engaged in EAC heads of state summit that is being hosted by President Uhuru Kenyatta. “

Our earlier communication later had stated that the Summit was convened for June 26 and 27 on which the days the three committees sough the Cabinet Secretaries attendance. However, the correct dates of the Summit were 25 to 27 June 2018. We regret the mix up,” it read in part. Matiangi’s move drew the anger of members of the committee who accused him of wanting to waste their time.
