Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i has revealed the reason behind his promotion.
While speaking on Wednesday morning during a radio interview at Egesa Fm Boka Boka show hosted by Lawrence Nyakundi Matiang'i said it is because of his hard work which made the Head of State to promote him.
"The promotion didn't come easily. I was promoted because I have dedicated myself to deliver and serve Kenyans without fear or favor," he said.
He insisted that he will not look back in his new roles in the government.
"I will not sit and listen to people opposed to the way I am working. I was given the opportunity by President Uhuru Kenyatta to serve Kenyans but, not listen to what people say. I wish to confirm I will offer my best in the new role in government towards the realization of President Uhuru Kenyatta's Big 4 Agenda," he noted.
Matiang'i appealed to elected leaders to focus on development.
"Politicians need to put their energies in serving the electorates who are their employers because this is not the right time to play politics," he added.
