Kenyans on social media had a lot to say after a photo of Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and a plump officer hit the internet. Kenyans were quick to troll the Homa Bay chief with many claiming he needs to hit the gym.
After the chief was senselessly trolled, Matiangi’s ministry has now issued a statement, stating that the unnamed official was suffering from a genetic disorder.
According to Mwenda Njoka, the Communication Director at the Interior and Co-ordination Ministry, the officer has tried to seek treatment on different occasion but nothing has been of help to his condition.
“The Chief in Homa Bay suffers from a rare genetic disease and has tried all sorts of treatment to no avail. Its callous and inhuman to accuse him of being corrupt by virtue of genetic illness,” Njoka said in his statement.
This after many social media users had trolled the officer, with some accusing him of being corrupt, judging from his humongous body size.
