BY WANJIKU JOAN,NAIROBI,5TH MARCH 2018-The father of  businessman Jimi Wanjigi has on Monday moved to court to  sue the government due to what he termed as  his family being subjected to untold torture and harassment owing to  his son Jimi’s  close association  with NASA leader Raila Odinga.

The 86 year old Maina Wanjigi also seeks  to block  prosecution in relation to firearms recovered from his son’s residence in October last year.

On Monday Morning  he skipped taking plea in a Nyeri Court facing charges of failing to keep his firearm safely as he is recovering from surgery.

His lawyer Kiogora Mugambi, says Wanjigi had  gone for a surgical operation and will not be able to take plea in the next six months.

He argues that   his  client  aught to have been  supplied with the charge sheet to enable him best a quint   himself with the charges he will be facing in the court.

He also wanted the matter be deferred since there was an ongoing petition in respect to the firearm in question before a Nairobi court.

Maina who is a former minister  was summoned to appear and answer to charges of failing to keep safe custody of a firearm a day after his son was charged with 11 counts of being in possession of illegal firearms
