Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka has revealed that he called Interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i on phone and encouraged him to take action on suspects involved in the contraband sugar business. Kalonzo said the fight against illegal sugar and other contraband goods must be encouraged for the safety of Kenyans.
