During thesession, Prof. Magoha disclosed that Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang'i,was the one who recommended him to President Uhuru Kenyatta for the KNECchairperson job and probably the CS job.
He cited thisafter he was asked on what basis he chose his first referee on his CV whohappens to be the Interior CS.
“I want to declarethat he (Matiang’i) is my friend but I did not appoint him as my referee on thebasis of that, I appointed him based on the fact that this is a ministerial jobwhich I never looked for and he has been one," Magoha noted.
"He is theone who recommended me to the president to go to KNEC, he would be able to tellyou what I did when I was there," he added.
