DCI raid Malala's home

Former Kakamega senator Cleophas Malala’s home has been raided by Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) as they seek to arrest him.

The officers forced their way in by breaking the padlocks at the gates of his Milimani home in Kakamega at around mid-day with Malala said to be locked inside the house by the time the officers were raiding.

It is unclear why the officers are going after the senator who just lost the Kakamega gubernatorial race to Fernandes Barasa.

Malala's legal representation said they had not seen any warrant of arrest for their client. Malala's parents moved to defend their son who was locked in the house.

"I have not seen any arrest warrant. What we are sure of is that this witch-hunt arises from the elections that have just been carried out which we feel is a bit unfair.

We seem to be the only ones who have been targeted. But we are still sorting this out as a legal team and we may not say anything that may go on record at this time," Grace Mburu, the legal representative said.
