Sleuths from the Directorate of Criminal investigations have raided the home of former Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala, who has gone hiding, in a manhunt for him.
Malala’s legal, speaking outside his house in Milimani in Kakamega, said they were not aware of the orders issued and were in consultation with the police to ascertain why their client was being sought.
“I have not seen any arrest warrant. What we are sure of is that this witchhunt arises from the elections that have just been carried out which we feel is a bit unfair.
“We seem to be the only ones who have been targeted. But we are still sorting this out as a legal team and we may not say anything that may go on record at this time,” Grace Mburu, who represented the team, told journalists.
“As a woman at this point, it is good to ensure that the Malala’s kids are not in the house in case of any forceful entries into the premises,” Ms. Mburu continued.
“Unfortunately, we are also in the dark and are waiting to see why the DCI are here. We are yet to establish whether the Senator is also in the house,” she added.
