DCI boss issues fresh details on last week's alleged raid at Matiang'i's home
In a statement issued on Wednesday, Mr. Amin said no one including the former CS has filed a complaint at any police station regarding the incident that occurred on February 8 where Matiang’i claims that his home was surrounded and cordoned off by police officers who were seeking to arrest him.
"After a comprehensive investigation, the DCI has determined that no complaint has been made at any police station regarding the alleged raid. Through our efforts, we have recorded statements from the VIP police deployed to Dr. Matiang'i's residence on the night in question, as well as statements from the private security company guarding the property," reads the statement.
The DCI boss went further to disclose that investigations had established that a Subaru car that was spotted by journalists entering the home of Dr. Matiang'i during the alleged raid last week belonged to a private businessman and not police.
"In our Investigations Status Update last week, there was a question from the Media about the ownership of a Subaru car, KDK 488L, that according to the Nation Journalist was captured entering the home of the former CS.
"We have since established that the vehicle belongs to Inter Management Group Limited and was at the time being driven by Peter Gacheru. Peter Gacheru is one of the directors at the Inter Management Group Limited and is a neighbour to the former CS at the Karen Ngong View Estate which is a gated community," stated the DCI Director.
He added: "Advocate Kethi Kilonzo acting on behalf of Peter Gacheru has confirmed the ownership details in a letter to DCI complete with current copies of the insurance and logbook."
Meanwhile, a contingent of police officers raided the home of Dr. Matiang'i on Wednesday afternoon to allegedly obtain CCTV recordings to establish the facts surrounding the alleged raid.
This happened despite the court earlier declining to issue orders for the DCI to access the CCTV footage.
Through an application dated February 10, the investigative agency wanted the court to direct the manager of Amsec Security Services, which mans Dr Matiangi’s home, to hand over security footage for the period between 6 am February 8 and 11pm, February 9.
However, the orders sought were not granted, with the magistrate ordering that the matter be mentioned on March 7.
The DCI boss assured that action would be taken against any officer found to have been involved in last week's alleged raid, which he termed as a “well-coordinated and deliberate attempt to spread false information and incite public fear.”
"Upon completing our investigation, we will take action if any officers from any security agency were involved in any unauthorized activities, or if any false information was knowingly disseminated by anyone to the public," said Amin.
