• The officers broke into his residence on February 15, ransacked the house, and left.
• Matiang'i said he will not be available for questioning by the DCI since he was out of the country.
Fred Matiang’i, the former Interior Cabinet Secretary has reportedly jetted back to the country on Sunday morning after a two-week trip to the UK for private reasons.
Matiang'i is now considering presenting himself before the DCI headquarters in Nairobi for statement recording after earlier summonses, officials close to him said.
Attempts to reach the former CS were futile as he did not respond to our calls. He was received at JKIA by close family members.
His departure on February 19 sparked speculations he sneaked out but he later clarified he was on a private trip to the UK and would come back.
Those in the know said he was keen to clear his name over claims of false publication of information.
The Immigration Department had revealed that Matiangi left the country a week before he was summoned.
"The subject departed on February 19, 2023, through JKIA on KLM flight number KL566," reads the letter.
The letter was written by Director General Emmanuel Simiyu, dated February 28, 2023.
Matiang'i had been summoned to appear before the DCI on February 24, 2023.
In a letter, detective Michael Sang directed Matiang'i to appear before him at Mazingira House at 9.30 am without fail.
However, Matiang'i said he will not be available for questioning by the DCI since he was out of the country.
The bone of contention revolves around the alleged raid in which police denied involvement and said they sought a court order to obtain CCTV footage from Matiang'i's home.
The officers broke into his residence on February 15, ransacked the house and left.
This was after on February 8, 2023, it was alleged that a group of elite police officers had surrounded the home of the former Interior CS in Karen, Nairobi.
The reason behind the sudden raid remained unclear.
