Matiang’i, Mutyambai grilled over arrest of three senators

The Senate Committee on Security on Wednesday grilled Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and Police Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai in a closed-door meeting in relation to the arrest of three Senators on Monday.

The Senators Christopher Lagat (Bomet), Steve Lelengwe (Samburu), and Cleophas Malala (Kakamega) were arrested in dramatic incidences by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations officers.

Mr. Matiang’i is expected to explain the whereabouts of the three senators whose arrests caused dramatic protests by their counterparts at the Senate on Monday.

Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka directed the Senate National Security Committee to summon CS Matiang’i to appear by Wednesday this week to shed more light on the arrest of the three legislators.
