EACC Investigates Fred Matiang’i’s Wealth Growth During Tenure as Interior CS


The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) in Kenya has requested the wealth declaration of former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.

The commission seeks certified copies of Matiang’i’s declaration of income, assets, and liabilities from 2012 to 2022, to establish how his wealth grew over the ten years he served under President Uhuru Kenyatta.

EACC’s chief executive, Twalib Mbarak, is investigating the ex-CS and will use the data as evidence.

To facilitate the investigation, the EACC has delegated officers Abdul Low and Paul Mugwe to collect the documents from Head of Public Service Felix Koskei’s office at Harambee House.

The request was made pursuant to Section 30(1)(4)(b) of the Public Officers Ethics Act.

Matiang’i was allegedly raided by the police in February, but both the police and the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI) have distanced themselves from the raid.

Matiang’i snubbed the DCI summons, and his lawyer argued that he was never directly served.

It remains to be seen how the investigation will progress and what implications it may have on Matiang’i’s political future.
