It is on a Thursday and the drama surrounding the conspicuous arrest, arraignment in court and the release of businessman Jimi Wanjigi still takes the country by surprise.
While releasing Wanjigi without any charges on Wednesday, the Nairobi court with confirmations from the DPP, said there is a High court order staying his prosecution.
The court’s magistrate said the proceedings cannot proceed until further directions are given by the High court. And immediately after his release, Wanjigi squarely laid the blame on his arrest on President Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
Wanjigi claimed the raid was politically orchestrated due to his political stance.
His tribulations started immediately after attending Kalonzo Musyoka’s Yatta meeting, with speculations stating that this came after the famous businessman expressed clear indications of throwing his weight behind Kalonzo Musyoka come Augustgeneral polls.
Do you agree with Wanjigi that this is political persecution?
