On Thursday, the Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) Mr Mohamed Amin categorically stated that no such raid happened and that Dr Matiang’i stage-managed the whole thing.

“Our preliminary investigations have recovered a well-coordinated and deliberate attempt to spread false information and incite public fear, unfortunately spear-headed by a person of the standing of a former Interior CS,” Mr Amin said.

Asked to explain the presence of the two vehicles at Dr Matiang’i’s gate, the DCI boss said they are still investigating whether the vehicles belonged to the National Police Service.

“As I have said, we are on with the investigations and we are yet to ascertain whether the vehicles belonged to the police service,” he said.
