Ex-CS Matiang’i refuses to record a statement, sparking a confrontation
Ex-CS Matiang’i refuses to record a statement, sparking a confrontation. Because former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i declined to make a statement, there was a deadlock at DCI.
He had come to give a statement, but he exercised his right to silence and said he had nothing to say.
According to one of his attorneys, Steve Mogaka, the investigators framed their two areas of interest, and Matiang’i claimed his constitutional right to silence on the advice of his legal team.

“The investigative team threatened to detain the CS, as they seemed to be acting on orders from somewhere else.
According to Mogaka’s Facebook post, the legal team reminded the investigators that a court order (anticipatory bail/bond) restrained any such intended arrest.
“They are determined to arrest the CS in violation of the court’s orders. As part of our duty to uphold the rights of all citizens, including but not limited to Hon. Cs. Dr. Fred Matiang’i, we have taken up residence at CID Headquarters. I’ll keep the nation updated.
According to other reports, when the attorneys arrived at the DCI, the questions had altered since the investigating officers had begun asking Matiang’i about his assets whereas the lawyers had anticipated the cross-examination to be about the summons.
According to Article 49 of the Constitution, which guarantees the right to silence, Matiangi allegedly declined to answer any of the questions. The police then announced that he would be detained.
They left the former CS and his crew in the boardroom after saying they needed to acquire his fingerprints.
According to his legal team, they have anticipatory bail orders and won’t let their client be held in custody unnecessarily.
Matiang’i entered an interrogation room where four senior officials from the Criminal Research and Intelligence Bureau were waiting after arriving in the company of attorneys.
Around midday, despite rumors that Matiang’i would be charged, there were still no signs of their leaving.
Our questions regarding the developments therein were not answered by DCI Mohamed Amin.
Even anti-terror police unit officers were stationed at DCI to bolster security.
Matiang’i is accused of disseminating false information about a supposed police raid on his Karen home between February 8 and February 9, 2023.
The former CS has been accused of, among other things, causing the release of incorrect material in violation of Section 23, among other offenses, of the Computer Misuse and Cyber Crimes Act of 2018.
He insisted that he never discussed the matter with any public officials. This relates to an attempted raid on his Karen residence on February 8.
Michael Sang, the head of severe crime, claims that he thinks Matiang’i may be involved in the crime or provide information that will help the inquiry.
Matiang’i returned to the nation on a jet Saturday.
