PHOTO: Fred Matiang'i's gate was destroyed when DCI officers raided his Karen home

Fred Matiang'i's gate was destroyed when DCI officers raided his Karen home.

The home of former Interior CS Fred Matiang'i was on Wednesday evening broken into by police officers.

The officers were reportedly looking for CCTV footage on the alleged home raid on February 8.

Matiang'i's lawyer Danstan Omari however said the police were denied court orders to access the former interior CS.

"Out of frustration they drive here in a military form without a court order, get inside the house of the former CS and ransacked his house," he said.

A multi-agency contingent in six vehicles arrived at the Karen home early evening after searching the home. The visit comes shortly after the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said they have made significant progress in the ongoing investigations surrounding the alleged raid on the night of Wednesday, February 8th 2023.

The lawyer called out the actions of the detectives in Karen.

“The police sneaked in without anybody knowing. We were alerted that they have arrested the watchman. They broke the door. The main gate has been broken. They gained access, they have ransacked the CS’s place upside down, and nobody was present. The CS was not present,” said Omari.

In a press release by DCI boss Mohamed Amin, they were armed with a search order.

“This afternoon, our officers obtained a search order to obtain CCTV recordings from the home of the former Interior Cabinet Secretary to establish the facts surrounding the alleged raid. Upon completing our investigation, we will take action if any officers from any security agency were involved in any unauthorized activities, or if any false information was knowingly disseminated by anyone to the public,” said Amin.

Omari confirmed that some of the officers present were those from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). Footage in the media revealed several police land cruisers and three Subaru vehicles.

The lawyer claimed that the police allegedly forced their way into the compound by reversing one of the vehicles into the gate.

He confirmed that the CS was safe as he was not in the house during the break-in. Omari added that if given a chance, he could identify at least 20 of the officers.

As the events unfolded, DCI boss Amin Mohamed issued a statement explaining that he directorate had obtained a court order allowing them to search Matiang'i's Karen home.
