DPP NOORDIN HAJI pulls a first one on RAILA ODINGA’s multibillionaire financier, JIMI WANJIGI’s gun case - No one saw this coming


Friday October 5, 2018 - The Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP) pulled a surprise move on Thursday in a case involving businessman Jimi Wanjigi and his father, James Maina Wanjigi.

In the suit where the two are charged with possession of illegal firearms, the DPP declined to speak during the mention of the case thus throwing the defence into a spin.

The DPP was expected to withdraw charges against the Wanjigis but when he was given the opportunity to do so, he remained silent.

Lawyer Kiogora Mugambi, representing the Wanjigis, had assured Nyeri Resident Magistrate, Ruth Kefa, that the charges would be dropped citing an alleged agreement.

"The judge said she would not continue mentioning the matter in the hope that DPP was going to withdraw the charges at the lower court in Nyeri.”

"She said it must continue and fixed a hearing date," Mugambi said on Thursday.

The case will be mentioned again on December 6th.
