The Cabinet Secretary For Interior Security and National Coordination has snubbed an invitation to appear before the joint Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture probing the sugar mess in the country, saying that he is officiating the ongoing 14th Summit of the Northern Corridor Integration Projects.

Committee Chairman Kanini Kega issued the fresh invite to Matiangi insisting that the CS should face them to shed light on what security agencies have done so far, particularly after declaring that some of the sugar contained mercury.

The probe on the sugar scandal by the lawmakers kicked off Monday with Cabinet Secretaries Mwangi Kiunjuri, Adan Mohammed, and Henry Rotich questioned on the subject that is a cause of concern for many Kenyans.

Discussing the issue, the MPs directed that Matiang’i should appear before the committee on Thursday, to explain what measures the ministry has taken to contain the issue at hand.

The legislators had set aside Thursday for a public session. The session would include owners and directors of the adversely mentioned companies, as well as members of the public.
