Former Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i has finally availed himself at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters.

Matiang'i arrived at the DCI flanked by his legal team led by lawyer Danstan Omari and the former Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa.

The former CS arrived 30 minutes before time as he was set to appear before the agency at 9:30 a.m. to be grilled on the alleged raid to his home by police on February 8.

The former CS was slightly denied access to the DCI offices as he was accompanied by too many people.


Below is the video showing him at the entrance of the DCI offices:

A heavy contingent of police was also deployed at the DCI headquarters to keep the former CS's supporters at bay.

Speaking to journalists, Kisii Senator Richard Onyonka who accompanied Matiang'i to the DCI said the former powerful minister should be taken through proper legal channels if he has any case to answer.

"I urge Kenya Kwanza not to instigate an authoritarian rule. If indeed there are any crimes that hon. Matiang'i has committed let him receive due process. Let him come and write a statement and discuss with the DCI what the issues are. If they find there is anything let him be taken to court and I know he has the capacity to defend himself," Onyonka stated.


The senator added that there has not been an instance before where a minister of interior has been asked to go and write statements and be charged in court once there is a transition for activities he conducted when he was in office.
