Residents in Kisii county came to the streets in a very vocal demonstration. The citizens of Kisii petitioned for the immediate release of former CS Fred Matiangi from the DCI headquarters. The protesters demanded that the government drop its investigation into the former minister.
Photos of the residents blocking roads with signs and branches are currently making the rounds on social media, illustrating the disruption they caused to drivers. The protesters' signs all demanded that the ex-CS be released from jail.
The former interior minister's hometown is in Kisii county. The people of Matiangi's home town have shown their support for him by staging demonstrations demanding his release from the DCI.
Yet, the Kisii locals' protest occurred only hours after ex-CS Fred Matiangi made news as he reported to the DCI headquarters this morning, March 7th. The DCI investigators were conducting a thorough investigation on the former minister.
