There have been claims on social media that former Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i is not in the country and that’s why he has not yet reported to the DCI offices.

The former Cabinet secretary has been complaining through his lawyers that the Ruto-led government is fighting him for not supporting his presidential candidature in the 2022 general elections.

Matiang’i who proudly supported Azimio party leader Raila Odinga complained earlier this month claiming that a special police squad had invaded his Karen home. The incident was condemned by leaders led by Azimio party leader Raila Odinga who claimed the government should stop using the police in witch-hunting on those who never supported them.

The claims of the invasion were rubbished by the police who would later raid the home seeking to retrieve the CCTV footage of the ‘alleged raid’. This later led to the summoning of Matiang’is lawyer Danstan Omari by the DCI which did not sit well with other lawyers teaming the summons as illegal and intimidation.

Matiang’i is yet to appear before the DCI since being summoned and now there are claims that the former Interior Cabinet Secretary is not in the country and he was aided by Raila Odinga and George Wajackoya to escape from the country.

The claims have not yet been verified whether the former cabinet secretary is in the country or not. Matiang’i was last seen in public in the company of former president Uhuru Kenyatta at the late former Education Cabinet Secretary’s home in Nairobi.
