Former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i’s lega team headed to court to block an attempt by the police to arrest him. The police raided his Karen home last night, February 8, and they did not say their intention.
Inspector of police Japhet Koome on Thursday said that no officer under the National Police Service was sent to the house of Matiang’i last night.
“I wish to clarify that no police officer under the NPS was sent to former CS Matiang’i residence at all,” the police chief told the Nation this morning.
Preliminary reports had suggested that Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officers were after the former CS, but EACC chief executive Twalib Mbarak said that his team had nothing to do with the alleged raid.
Police officers on Wednesday Evening entered the Karen home of Matiang’i few minutes before 10pm and were attempting to force their way in.
