Police raid former Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i Karen home, Nairobi on Thursday night.

Attorney Danstan Omari told the journalists outside the former CS’s home that Maiang’i’s life was in danger and that they did not know why a raid was intended on the home.

“I can confirm that the life of Matiang’i is at risk. We don’t know the intention of wanting to invade Matiang’i’s home at this time of the night. We don’t know what offence he has committed… Our client is ready to be summoned, and record a statement if they have anything to charge him with. My client is holed up as if he is a fugitive in his own country,” said Omari.

“My client is holed up as if he is a fugitive in his own country. We have put a cordon in his house of more than 200 lawyers protecting our client to see the light. We will not leave here until morning so that if he is arrested we follow the law,” said Omari.

Raila Odinga, the leader of the opposition, condemned the security operation, calling it “completely unacceptable,” as soon as he arrived at the former CS’s house at around 10 p.m.

“There is no reason why police should be coming to somebody’s home at this hour of the night. If Matiang’i has committed a crime warranting his arrest, that should be made public and known to him and he can present himself for interrogation,” said Odinga.
