Matiang’i to be charged with conspiracy to commit a felony
Former Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i now faces two charges including conspiracy to commit a felony over the alleged ‘raid’ of his home on February 9.
According to the charge sheet by the Directorate of Criminal Investigation seen by NTV, the former CS is accused of attempting to cause panic, chaos or violence amongst Kenyans by claiming that his house had been raided by a battalion of officers intending to arrest him.
Matiang’i is also facing a second charge; publication of false information contrary to section 23 of the Computer Misuse and Cybercrimes.
“On February 8, 2023, at Karen Ngong View Estate within Nairobi County in the Republic of Kenya with intent to cause panic, chaos or violence amongst citizens of Kenya jointly with others published in the media that your house had been raided by a battalion and or “garrison” of officers intending to arrest you, a fact you knew to be false,” the charge sheet prepared by Chief Inspector of Police attached to the Investigations Bureau of DCI HeadquatersMaurice Shiraho read in part.
This comes hours after Matiang’i presented himself alongside a buffer of lawyers to honour summons by the Directorate. He was questioned on the alleged raid.
