Police boss Japhet Koome.
Police Inspector General, Japhet Koome

On Thursday, the Police Inspector General, Japhet Koome, said that no officer from the National Police Service was taken to the residence of the former minister of the interior, Fred Matiang'i, last night.


This morning, the head of the National Police Service (NPS) spoke to the media and said, "I would like to clarify that no police officer under the NPS was deployed to the former CS Matiang'i house at all."


Initial reports claimed that officials from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) were chasing the former CS. However, the chief executive of the EACC has said that his team had no involvement in the alleged raid. Twalib Mbarak spoke to the media last night about this matter.


The Karen residence of Matiang'i was besieged by law enforcement personnel on Wednesday evening.


According to what our sources told us, law enforcement showed up at the Karen home of the former CS a few minutes before 10 p.m. and tried to force their way in.


A few minutes after 10 o'clock in the evening, the head of the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition, Raila Odinga, arrived at the residence of Matiang'i. He wanted to know why the police had surrounded the former CS's house and placed a siege on it.


Dr. Matiang'i's legal team, who were also gathered at his apartment, criticized the action as being non-procedural and said that there is a possibility that Dr. Matiang'i's life is in jeopardy.


"The police have not said what they seek from him or what he has done wrong thus far."


We are at a loss to comprehend why the police would come to our client's location in the middle of the night to make an arrest.


 "I don't understand why they didn't come during the day," posed lawyer Sam Nyaberi.


However, it looked like Azimio used the means to besiege themselves and point fingers at the government.


No police unit was sent to the former CS's home. "The Azimio wanted to disapprove of the fact that police can also be used to settle political scores," said MP Kabando wa Kando.
