Matiangi Says No To Tenderpreneurs

In what has been widely claimed to be a direct jab at the DP and his footmen, Matiangi has stated publicly that he will not allow for the outsourcing of the police uniform tender to companies out of the country. 

"The Inspector General of Police, the PS and myself have been under pressure by some quarters, and all manner of thieves, that we should import police uniforms.

"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," Matiang'i said.

The Standard yesterday reported that police have not been able to get their new uniforms because the fabric is unavailable.

But Matiang'i dismissed the claims, insisting that the government has already paid NYS Rivatex and companies in the Export Processing zones to make the uniforms.

"We will not import police uniforms. No amount of pressure, manipulation or anything will change that position. That style of life has come to an end in Kenya. It has come to an end and no one is going to live that way.

“Sasa wewe na wakora wako mahali mlikubaliana mtanunua uniform mtaenda muwaambie na muwaeleze kwamba hatutanunua uniform kutoka kwingine," Matiang'i said. This loosely translates to "You and your crooks, wherever you agreed that you will import police uniforms, go back and tell them that we are not importing."
