Former Interior CS Fred Matiang’i says he will today present himself before the Directorate of Criminal Investigations for questioning an hour earlier than directed.
His lawyer Danstan Omari says they have written to the summoning officer to inform him of the changes.
“We are confirming that we shall be there, there is nothing for the CS to hide,” he said.
Matiang’i is wanted for questioning concerning the alleged police raid at his home in Karen on the night of February 8.
He was summoned to appear before DCI detective Michael Sang “at 9.30 am without fail”.
“Failure to comply with the requisition constitutes an offence liable to prosecution” said DCI.

Omari says they are now ready to record a statement concerning the raid.
“We have never gone there because we have never been served officially. I was served today, we confirmed we are law-abiding citizens. We will take the CS there tomorrow,” Omari said.
Through Musyoki Mogaga and Co Advocates, Matiang’i told the DCI his lawyers and himself will be engaged in other matters at 9 am, the time he was summoned to appear.
“Unfortunately we are constrained to seek that the date of appearance be deferred to March, Tuesday 7, 8am owing to prior arranged court dates on our part,” the lawyers said.
“The notice is fairly short and our client and ourselves might not be in a position to be present without offending our prior arrangements,” the lawyers said.
