Former Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Fred Matiang’i on Tuesday, March 7 has gone to the DCI Headquarters on Kiambu Road for interrogation.
Matiang’i is under probe by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) following the reported police raid on his Karen home in Nairobi on February 9, 2023. The DCI claim the former CS could published false information regarding the alleged police raid in his home.
Matiang’i arrived at the DCI headquarters at 8:30am accompanied by his lawyer lawyer Danstan Omari, Rarieda MP Otiende Omolo and other advocates.
He was to appear before the DCI last week, but his lawyer said Matiang’i had travelled to the United Kingdom to attend to family matters.
Matiang’i served as a minister in three different portfolios, including Education and Interior dockets, between 2013 and 2022 under former president Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration.
The current administration, led by President William Ruto, accused Matiang’i of targeting politicians allied to the Head of State in the run-up to the August 9, 2022 General Election.
Some of Kenyatta’s lieutenants are claiming that the Ruto administration is out to revenge on the former president’s close allies.
