Interior Cabinet Secretary Professor Kithure Kindiki has issued a statement on the alleged police raid at Fred Matiangi’s’ Karen home.
In the communique from Arabal, Baringo County on Thursday, February 9, CS Kindiki dismissed the reports as fake noting that no law enforcement agency was ordered to pursue the former minister.
“This allegation is utterly false. No police officer(s) or any security agent from any Government institution or department was dispatched to the home of Dr. Matiang'i to arrest, harass or otherwise interfere with his Constitutional rights in any manner whatsoever.
“I have confirmed with the command of the National Police Service (NPS), the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) and all law enforcement agencies that none of them have any orders to look for the former Minister,” the statement read in part.
Kindiki asked any person with information about the alleged incident to file a complaint at any police station for an investigation to be conducted.
“Our Country's security agencies remain apolitical and focused on addressing the security challenges that Our Nation is facing. Any person with information relating to the alleged incident at Dr. Matiang'i's home last night is advised to file a formal complaint at the nearest police station for investigations and appropriate action,” Kindiki added.
The allegations have sparked debate online with Kenyans making guesses over the incident.
