Wanjigi caught off guard by government, days after Raila-Uhuru deal

He didn't see it coming

The withdrawal of the case had earlier been reported to have been one of the informal agreements made after President Uhuru Kenyatta met with NASA leader Raila Odinga.

However, come Thursday, Mugambi was surprised after Senior Counsel Wesley Nyamachae told Chief Magistrate Wendy Kagendo that the DPP had no intention of terminating the four cases affecting the Wanjigis.

Jimi’s father and former Cabinet Minister Maina Wanjigi was further required to submit his medical records that would explain why he missed a previous court appearance.

Jimi’s bodyguard Boniface Nginyo Mwaura is also facing charges of misusing his firearm.

The businessman’s lawyer Memba Muriuki is also facing criminal charges for allegedly selling illegal firearms to Jimi.
