The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has moved to court seeking orders to force the security firm manning former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi’s Karen home in Nairobi to provide CCTV footage on the alleged raid on his home on February 8, 2023.
The Amin Mohammed-led agency had claimed that Matiangi had stage-managed the raid in what subsequently prompted their investigations.“This Honorable Court should issue an order compelling the manager of Bob Morgan Security Services Limited (the Respondent), or through his/her nominee, to allow, DCI Cyber forensic expert access and extract, the CCTV footage,” read in part the application filed in court.
The DCI has submitted an application to the magistrate court in Nairobi, stating that they are investigating an alleged attempted robbery, which violates section 297 of the Penal Code.
Officers drawn from an elite squad, as per Matiangi’s lawyers, visited his home in an unknown visit.
Mohammed and the Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome both subsequently denied having sanctioned the operation at Matiangi’s home.
“The DCI confirms that this was a deliberate and malicious attempt to spread false information and incite fear, and is nothing more than the highest form of fake news,” Mohammed said.
