Former President Kenyatta son’s residence raided

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta has claimed that his first-born son Jomo’s residence in Karen was raided by mysterious individuals who identified themselves as police officers on Friday.

Addressing the media on Friday night, the furious Uhuru said the alleged DCI officers arrived at his son’s residence seeking to ransack the place.

“I got a report from my son that he came and the watchman said there were people claiming to be DCI officers in a vehicle with Sudanese registration who claimed they want to speak and see him,” Uhuru explained.

According to the retired Head of State, he advised his son against allowing the officers to search the place without providing the necessary documentation.

“I told him from my knowledge when the police want to do something, they don’t come with foreign number plates, they have a warrant, they state their case and show the warrant of what they want to do,” he narrated.

A security officer at the residence told the media that the unidentified personnel gave a verbal order for the family to surrender firearms they claimed were in their possession.

“They said the licensing officer said that there were firearms possessed by the family that they needed them surrendered,” the guard said.

However, Uhuru said that after arriving he found the officers had already left the premises.
