Matiang’i arrives early at DCI headquarters with legal team


Former Interior CS Fred Matiang’i faced a temporary hurdle as he arrived at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters on Kiambu Road.

Police at the gate halted him and his lawyers from accessing the DCI officers, citing the need to consult on who should accompany him.

Matiang’i was supposed to arrive at 9:30 am as per the summons from the DCI, but he was there by 8:30 am.

He arrived in the company of lawyers Danstan Omari, Otiende Amollo, and Okongo Omogeni.

As they waited outside the gate for almost ten minutes, tens of supporters cheered him on as he alighted from his car.

Eventually, Matiang’i was allowed in with about 14 lawyers at 8:47 am.

He remained composed and saluted the crowd outside the DCI as he entered.

Matiang’i is facing charges of spreading false information about an alleged raid at his Karen residence by a group of police officers between February 8 and 9, 2023.

Some of the charges against him include causing the publication of false information contrary to Section 23 of the Computer Misuse and Cyber Crimes Act of 2018 and other offenses.

While he maintained that he never talked to any public officer regarding the issue, Head of Serious Crime Michael Sang believes that Matiang’i could either be connected to the offense or could provide information that could assist in the investigation.

Matiang’i arrived in the country on Saturday and is expected to continue cooperating with the DCI as the investigation progresses.
