Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has asked Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i to persevere after he revealed that he was being frustrated by Parliament.
Matiang'i on Friday lamented that both the Senate and the National Assembly were frustrating Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries by issuing an increasing summons.
Speaking during a function in Mombasa, the CS disclosed that already he has received letters to appear before four different House committees to answer various queries.
Matiang'i, who also heads the National Development Implementation and Communication Committee, asked the MPs and Senators to be summoning CSs only during joint House committee sittings.
"It is very frustrating to receive 4 letters asking us to appear before parliament committees; 2 in the Senate and 2 in the National Assembly. No one suffers more than the executive. Who would die if two committees sat together?" he said.
"No one pays a higher price than the executive branch of government. And my colleagues can attest to this. Every time I see three or four letters I keep asking, don't these people have a central place to know which committee has invited who?," added the CS who spoke during the second leadership retreat of the National Assembly at the Sarova White Sands Beach.
Responding to Matiang'i, Kabogo said the summons were normal activities and encouraged him to remain determined in his duties.
"I understand your frustrations but that’s just how it works out there Mr," the former county boss tweeted.
During his tenure as Kiambu Governor, Kabogo snubbed various summons by the Senate to explain expenditure of county funds.
