No Sh 60 Million reward... CS Matiang'i rejects prize for prison break terror suspects informers

Terror suspects arrested in Kitui after a public tip-off.


Interior CS Fred Matiangi declines giving the Ksh.60 million bounty pledged for information that would oversee to the detention of three terror criminals who had fled from Kamiti Maximum Prison.

Reports revealed that the three jailbirds; Musharaf Abdalla, Mohamed Ali Abikar and Joseph Juma Odhiambo, were apprehended in a bush within Kitui County following a tip-off from members of the public.

At Kamiti prison where the three fugitives were returned after their recapture, Interior CS Fred Matiang'i rejected the prize move after a question by Citizen TV journalist Hassan Mugambi over the Ksh.60 million reward.

"For the Kenyans who offered the information, will they get the reward?" Hassan Mugambi asked.

In reaction, the Interior CS added, "No...no...no, we are not going there at the moment. Let us be speculative about this. We are going to work on this meticulously as my colleagues have said."


"The reason why we are here with ICT CS Joe Mucheru is that we have looked at the full ICT system in this place and a partnership between us and the ICT Ministry will instantly reconfigure this because there are certain setbacks," he said.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations on Monday declared openly a manhunt for three terror suspects.


"PRISON BREAK! A reward of Sh60 Million will be offered to anyone with information that may lead to the arrest of the following three terror suspects, who escaped from Kamiti Maximum Security Prison today at 1 am."
