Kindiki Denies Matiang’i’s Home Raid, Says ‘This Allegation Is False’

Professor Kithure Kindiki, the Interior Cabinet Secretary, has weighed in on the alleged raid on the home of his predecessor, Dr. Fred Matiang’i.

Through a statement dated Thursday, February 9, Kindiki stated that no officer was dispatched to Dr. Matiangi’s home in Karen to arrest him on Wednesday night.

“This allegation is 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,” Prof Kindiki said.

The CS stated that he has confirmed with the National Police Service (NPS), the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA), and all law enforcement agencies that no one has been given orders to look for the former Minister.

He stated that the security agencies will remain apolitical and focused on addressing the country’s security challenges.

Kindiki also called on witnesses to come out and contact officers over the alleged raid.

“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,” he said.
