Leaders Condemn Security Operation At Matiang’i’s Home


Leaders from various parts of the country have come out to condemn the alleged security operation conducted at the home of former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i in Karen Nairobi on Wednesday night.

Some of the leaders who camped at Matiang’i’s home led by the Azimio One Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga said late-night arrests and detention without any charges are unacceptable adding that if he has committed a crime warranting his arrest, it should be made public and known to him so as he can present himself for interrogation.

Matiang’I’s lawyers led by Danstan Omari were among the leaders who visited the former CS’s home immediately after the raid, noting that their client’s life is at risk and accusing police of harassment.

They stated that their client is ready to be summoned, to appear before any police station and record a statement provided there are have charges against him.

Meanwhile, Inspector General of police Japhet Koome Thursday denied claims his officers went to former interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangí’s house in Karen.

He said he had checked and found no such operation was sanctioned.

Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission Chief Executive Officer Twalib Mbarak also denied his officers were involved in the said attempted raid.

According to earlier reports, the officials who raided Matiang’i’s home had two unmarked cars and claimed they were from EACC and Asset Recovery Agency.
