Raila denied entry to DCI headquarters, supporters gather outside.


On Tuesday, Raila Odinga, the prominent leader of the Azimio political party, found himself in a tense standoff with a police officer at the entrance of the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters in Nairobi.

Odinga had arrived at the Mazingira House, where Fred Matiang’i, the former Interior Cabinet Secretary, was being questioned by DCI officers over an alleged raid at his Karen home a month prior.

Despite his status as a public officer, Odinga was informed by the officer on duty that he was not allowed to enter the public offices due to ongoing consultations.

The opposition leader strongly objected to this decision, arguing that he had every right to access the DCI headquarters as a member of the public.

Matiang’i was later released after hours of questioning.
