Media was Wednesday morning blocked from covering the grilling of Interior Security CS Fred Matiangi and Police IG Hillary Mutyambai by the Senate security committee.


The CS and police boss were summoned to respond to the unfortunate circumstances that saw Senators Steve Lelegwe (Samburu), Cleophas Malala (Kakamega), and Dr. Christopher Lagat (Bomet) arrested on Monday and driven to their respective counties.

As the two security chiefs arrived at parliament buildings,  they found journalists already waiting to cover the session.

However, the chairperson of the Senate security committee Yussuf Haji immediately asked the journalists to leave the scene and that they would be called later.

The three Senators were arrested as a ninth vote on the controversial counties’ revenue-sharing formula loomed. However, the Senators who were irked by the events that found their three colleagues adjourned the proceedings demanding the release of the detained lawmakers.
