The Director of Public Prosecutions on Monday, March 13, dropped all charges against former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and his lawyer Danstan Omari

In a statement issued by the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Lilian Obuo, the evidence availed by the DCI was not sufficient.

“Upon independent and thorough analysis of the evidence availed and a review of the statement of the witnesses, the Director of Public Prosecutions found that the evidence provided was not sufficient to sustain the above charges against Dr. Fred Okeng’o Matiang’i and his advocate Danstan Omari.

“The evidence provided did not meet the ingredients needed to prove each of the fore- mentioned offences as required by law.

The Director of Public Prosecutions has therefore directed the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to close the inquiry file with no further police action,” the statement read in part.

The DCI had submitted recommendations in an enquiry file dated March 7, 2023, that Fred Matiang’i and his advocate Danstan Omari be charged for the offences.

The charges against the former CS were conspiracy to commit a felony and publication of false information.
