What Police Officer Who Saluted Raila at DCI Headquarters Did Just Seconds Later

Things took an interesting turn at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters in Kiambu Road on Tuesday, after Azimio La Umoja coalition leader Raila Odinga attempted to stage a walk in.

Raila was blocked by officers from accessing the premises, where former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i, an ally of his, was being grilled by detectives.

The interesting part was that an officer who had shown Raila the most respect when arrived at the gate was the same one who blocked him from going in to be with the former minister.

The officer saluted Raila as soon as he approached the gates, but only to tell him that there was no way he was going in, thanks to orders from above.

"I am under instruction sir that you can't go in, none of you will go in," he said.

A face off ensued between the two, with the opposition leader threatening to order his supporters to forcefully access the premises.

He found it unfair that he was being prevented from accessing a public office, adding that he wanted to see DCI Mohamed Amin.

“This is a public office, you want me to order these people to go in by force? This is a public officer, he cannot be ordered not to see the director. If they want problems they will get them," he said.

Matiang'i was later released after hours of grilling, with his lawyers now saying that he will be charged in court in the coming days.

His woes come only six months after he left office, which has since been handed to Kithure Kindiki.
