The Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) has written to the Head of Public Service Felix Koskei, seeking certified copies of former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i's wealth declaration.

The anti-graft body is looking to establish how the former Interior Cabinet Secretary acquired his wealth during his time as cabinet secretary.

In the letter to Koskei, EACC CEO Twalib Mbarak said the agency was looking into the former CS' wealth between 2012 - 2022.

“The Commission is carrying out investigations involving Dr. Fred Matiang'i, former Cabinet Secretary for Interior and Coordination of National Government. Our officers Mr. Abdul Low and Mr. Paul Mugwe will be available to collect the documents," EACC said.

The DCI and the police however distanced itself from the raid which was reported to have happened on the night of Wednesday, February 8.

DCI Director Amin Ibrahim however confirmed investigations into the former CS although it had not gotten to a point of warranting his arrest.
