Let me tell you the real reason these guys are after me- Danston Omari reveals.
Lawyer Danston Omari has revealed why the Government is after him. This comes days after the directorate of criminal investigations summoned him.
Apparently, the lawyer fabricated and put forward false accusations against the police on the february 8th when Matiangi’s residence was allegedly raided.
Omari stated that the real reason why this is happening is because he is representing the disbanded Special Service Unit (SSU) officers.
In his Interview at TV 47, Omari highlighted the disbanded special service unit being labelled killers, was a narrative that was created during the campaigns.
He stated,”Let me tell you the real reason these guys are after me. When the Kenya Kwanza government came to power, there was a narrative that the police were killers… They were arrested and no advocate appeared. I stood firm defending the police.”
Further, Omari stated that the when the current leaves power, most of the cases against these police will be dropped; This indicates there was intereference by politics.
He stated,”For the record, I have more than 500 files where I’m defending the police. So it is quite musical and I’ve told them after they lose power all those cases will be dropped and what will be the answer? there was interference by politics to the DCI to arrest.”
Additionally, Omari questioned on why the police have not bothered to take a statement from the former CS Matiangi ever since that night.
He stated,”Whether the raid was there or not, advocates are called on distress. These people have never gone to visit my client and take a statement from the CS. They have not summoned Raila Odinga who we were there with. Why don’t they summon Raila Odinga.”
