Fred Matiang’i, a former interior cabinet secretary, refused to record a statement, leading to a confrontation at the DCI offices.
After a reported police raid at his Karen House in Nairobi, which the National Police Service denied taking place, Matiang’i was forced to submit a statement.
Yet, Matiang’i is alleged to have remained silent and refused to record anything regarding the police raid while speaking with the detectives.
He is said to have informed detectives that he is entitled under the Constitution to silence.
The action compelled the DCI investigators to exit the interrogation room in order to plan their next step.
The Former CS is present with his four attorneys, namely Okong’o Omogeni, Eugene Wamalwa, Danstan Omari, and Otiende Amollo.
As a High Court advocate and the West Mugirango MP, I accompanied CS Dr. Fred Matiangi to the CID headquarters office on Kiambu Road in response to a summons seeking his attendance, Mogaka stated.
“The investigators created two questions for Matiang’i to answer. Matiang’i asserted his constitutional right to silence on the counsel of his legal team.
He continued by saying that it appears as though someone in the State House is giving commands to the DCI officers.
