Azimio One Kenya Coalition leader Raila Odinga has made his way to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters where former Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i is being interogatted.

"This is a public office, how can I not to be allowed to see the director? This is a public office and I have a right to go inside. Do you want me to order this people to go inside?" an angry Raila told off the officers.

The officer hower assured Raila he was in consultations with his seniorsand was going to give the way forward.

Raila left the DCI headquarters after efforts to access the premises hit a snug.

According to one of Matiangi's lawyer, Steve Mogaka, the investigators presented two areas of interest to which Matiang'i, on the advice of his legal team, invoked his constitutional right to remain silent.

The investigators then threatened to arrest Matiang'i, despite there being a court order restraining any such action.

Otiende Amollo on the other hand called the investigation a 'pure vendetta & witch-hunt,' stating that Matiang'i has been held in abeyance for five hours despite only being engaged for 15 minutes.

"Interesting times, with former Interior CS Fred Matiangi at DCI Kiambu, 5 hours later, still held in abeyance after only 15 minutes engagement. This, despite a Hight Court Order! This is no investigation, pure Vendetta and witch-hunt. sad indeed!" Otiende said.
