Lawyer Dunstan Omari has said that his client, the former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i is in the United Kingdom for a private family matter and that there is nothing sinister with his travel outside the country.
This is after reports said that Matiangi had sneaked out of the country right under the nose of security agencies who have a bone to pick with him. Dr Matiangi is currently under probe by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) and the Ethics and Corruption Commission (EACC).
Omari has termed the reports about his client as being “clearly stage-managed wars and evidently driven by inexplicable vendetta and malice.”
According to Omari, Matiang’i traveled to the UK on Sunday, February 19, aboard KLM (Passenger) Flight KL 566 and had even made known to the senior security sectors.
Omari clarified that his client is there to attend to an urgent private family matter, in a private capacity.
“I have instructions that my client informally notified senior security sector and diplomatic officials about his two (2) week trip to the UK. It is therefore unfair to cast aspersions on his movement,” said Omari.
” Those familiar with his travel schedules over time will confirm that he travels regularly to that part of the world via KLM and — as was in this case — very openly, through open public means.”
