UHURU‘s son JOMO withdraws gun case against RUTO’s government after they vowed not to harass him again


Wednesday, January 31, 2024 - Former President Uhuru Kenyatta’s son, Jomo, has withdrawn a case he had sued the Kenya Kwanza government over plans to withdraw his firearms.

In a consent adopted by High Court judge Jairus Ngaah on Wednesday, Jomo withdrew the case he filed last year after the State agreed not to interfere with his firearms license.

The parties further agreed that the Firearms Licensing Board does not intend to withdraw the license and that it will follow the procedure laid out in the Firearms Act, in dealing with Jomo.

“By consent, this matter is hereby marked as settled,” Justice Ngaah said.

Jomo moved to court in July last year after police officers stormed his Windy Ridge home in Karen and demanded that he surrender his firearms.

He argued that the move was in violation of his constitutional rights.

The officers had stormed Jomo’s apartment, claiming he was renting his guns to Azimio One Kenya Alliance supporters, who were allegedly shooting police officers during the mass protests organized by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
