There was a drama at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations offices at Kiambu road shortly after former Interior CS Fred Matiang'i made his way in for a grilling.
This was after a battery of his lawyers, who had accompanied him to record statements were reportedly kicked out of the grilling room. Among the lawyers, who were blocked from entering the room included Danstan Omari, Otiende Amollo and Okong'o Omogeni.
There was pull and push between the lawyers and a security officer who was manning the gate to the offices after he refused to let in the lawyers.
"You can block the supporters but allow the lawyers to go in. You consult them we will wait," stated one of the lawyers Senator Okong'o Omogeni
They were forced to wait outside for minutes as the officers were holed up in a discussion to deliberate on whether to allow them in or not.
Matiang'i handed himself to the DCI on Tuesday morning just two days after jetting back to the country from his UK trip.
The former Interior ministry boss has been under probe by the DCI, questioning him over the alleged police raid at his Karen house in February. The former CS was summoned by Senior Superintendent of Police Michael Sang who said Matiang'i could have published false information regarding the alleged police raid a fortnight ago.
Matiang'i had claimed that police officers had raided his home in February but the officers rubbished the claims. Media was also castigated for misreporting after failing to produce videos of the alleged raid.
It is a move that has heavily been castigated by Azimio la Umoja leaders led by Raila Odinga. The leaders have maintained that this is a political witch hunt by the state.
