Orengo, while eulogising Matiba at Ihura stadium in Murang’a, said paying the family whatever amount of money will not end the pain caused to him by the KANU regime.
The Siaya Senator said that those who caused Matiba immense suffering in prison are still alive and should not go unpunished.
“Those who made him die in prison are still alive and must be dealt with. At least I know one and the current leadership must own that mistake and apologise to this family.”
Orengo said Matiba is among the “few politicians who will make it to heaven for their true dedication to humanity”.
“I may not be a prophet or a seer or a man of God because I live in the solace of the word that we are all sinners and have fallen short of the Glory of God.”
“But I want to say that if there is a politician I know will go to heaven, it is one Kenneth Matiba. I am not sure about the rest including myself,” he said amid laughter.
Orengo said the current breed of leadership in the country is that which cannot only be accused of taking someone’s donkey but can also drive away the whole flock.
The Senate Minority leader said it is a time for all Kenyans to resolve and build a one united Kenya free of tribalism.
Orengo further castigated politicians for “only uniting in death”.
