Interior Cabinet Secretary nominee Kithure Kindiki has revealed his number one assignment as soon as he assumes office.
Appearing before the National Assembly Appointment Committee Tuesday, Kindiki said his first assignment will be setting the country free from criminals, bandits, terrorists and cattle rustlers.
Kindiki said this will not be done through press conferences since security does not require speaking.
During the vetting, Kindiki, failed to provide his National Identification Card blaming this on a “communication barrier by the committee.”
He did, however, say that he had sent somebody for the document and that it would be delivered to the committee before the vetting was over.
While presenting his resume and extensive career in the legal profession, Kindiki noted that he was the right fit for the Interior Cabinet slot and addressed key issues facing the public and security sectors.
“I have practised law for 22 years and I am listed in the list of counsel licenced to practise law at the International Criminal Court,” he said.
Kindiki has served as Senator for Tharaka-Nithi, from 2013 to 2022. He clinched the seat on his first attempt at elective politics.
He was then elected the first leader of the Majority in the Senate, a position he held until he became the Deputy Speaker after the 2017 general elections.
