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
