Former Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i on Sunday, March 12, attended Gusii leaders meeting at a Nairobi hotel.
Reports indicated that the meeting, which was chaired by Education Cabinet Secretary Ezekiel Machogu, was aimed at uniting all Gusii leaders irrespective of their political affiliation.
Among those who attended included Machogu, Solicitor General Nominee Shadrack Mose, former Deputy Majority leader Jimmy Angwenyi and business mogul John Simba.
During the meeting, the leaders also discussed President William Ruto's scheduled tour of the region later in the month.
CS Machogu had affirmed that he would consolidate all Gusii leaders to unite in a bid to enhance development within the region.
"I will meet and have discussions with all our leaders. We are working as a team to achieve our development goals. Nobody will be left out. Those interested in politicking will have themselves to blame," Machogu stated.
The Education CS pointed out the pivotal role played in unity among all Gusii leaders in realising the development agenda.
"No region will be left out, our two counties will have a share of the national cake," he noted.
This marked Matiang'i's first appearance since he recorded his statement at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road on Thursday, March 9, over claims that police had raided his Karen home.
The whole incident saw a section of Gusii leaders call for the Kenya Kwanza administration to respect the former CS for his contribution to the development of the country during retired president Uhuru Kenyatta's tenure.
"It is not fair to parade outgoing government officials before cameras in the name of carrying out investigations. Let us have some respect for those who have such offices." Kisii Senator Richard Onyonka stated.
Matiang'i's file, detailing the investigation's outcome of the alleged raid in his Karen home in Nairobi, was received by the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji, who will make the decision on whether to charge the former CS or not.
