Azimio leader Raila Amollo Odinga has been prevented from accessing the DCI headquarters in Nairobi where the former interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i is being grilled on allegations that the police raided his Karen home.

Matiang’i arrived at the DCI offices in the morning but had to wait for ten minutes to be let in. The former cabinet secretary travelled to the UK on February 19 to attend to a family matter according to his lawyer Danstan Omari.

The Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) is also looking into the former secretary’s worth since he took public office in 2013. The government and opposition have been in a back and forth exchange of words with the Azimio leader criticizing the government for using state authorities for political reasons.

The former cabinet secretary’s home was allegedly raided on the night of February 9 by the police, claims that the DCI refuted saying they were a stage-managed occurrence aimed to spread false information about the government and incite public fear.
