Information about when former Interior CS Fred Matiangi departed the country has been made public by the Immigration Department.
The State Agency for Citizen Services stated that Matiang’i departed the country a week before he was called in a letter sent to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.The letter states, “The subject departed on February 19, 2023, through JKIA on KLM aircraft number KL566.”
Director General Emmanuel Simiyu penned the letter, which was dated February 28, 2023. Dr. Fred Matiang’i is currently the subject of a probe by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC), which is also looking into his financial situation.
The commission requests access to the wealth declaration forms submitted by the former prominent minister throughout his 10-year stint in Cabinet in a letter dated February 27 addressed to Chief of Staff and Head of Public Service Felix Koskei.
“The Commission is conducting inquiries into Dr. Fred Matiang’i…
The commission wants certified copies of the first and final Disclosure of Income, Assets and Liabilities forms for the years 2012 to 2022, in accordance with Section 30(1)(4)(b) of the Public Officers Ethics Act, according to a letter submitted by EACC CEO Twalib Mbarak.
Mbarak announced that two policemen would be dispatched to Chief of Public Service Felix Koskei to retrieve the relevant paperwork.
The troubled former CS was summoned by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) over the purported police raid at his house three weeks earlier, which prompted the EACC’s action just a week later.
An earlier summons for the same offense—publishing false information about the alleged raid—was issued to Matiang’i’s attorney, Danstan Omari.
But, the High Court extended orders prohibiting the police from intimidating or detaining Matiang’i. The DCI was thus forbidden from opening any criminal investigations against the attorney, detaining or questioning him.
