Good news to Fred Matiang'i after the court found out that Attorney General Justin Muturi was still supposed to defend him on the ongoing case.
Matiang'i was sued over the utterance he made during the 2020 campaign. Petitioner went to court demanding the arrest of the former CS.
The petitoners also wanted the court to bar Matiang'i from receiving the legal services from AG Muturi.
The court has however found that the utterances made by Matiangí were in the context of addressing a security situation in the country, which was within remits of his interior docket at that time.
He was therefore discharging his duty, hence deserved the defence by the AG.
This comes as Matiang'i is battling with DCI over the alleged home raid.
Matiangi was required to appear at DCI headquarters on Friday last week for questioning over false information he spread alleging a police raid at his Karen home.
His lawyers however said the summons were unsigned hence his decision to defy the orders. They also said Matiangi has valid court orders shielding him from arrest by the police.
