Mati Nyamu wins again: DCI George Kinoti Off the Hook as Appeal court Suspends warrant of Arrest
The second most powerful Appeal court has today suspended an arrest warrant which was issued by Justice Murima against the DCI boss George Kinoti until April 1, 2022.
Kinoti’s lawyer led by Mati Nyamu had moved to the higher court, seeking to quash his jailing for refusing to return businessman Jimi Wanjigi’s guns after he was ordered to do so by the High Court.
Lawyers led by Mati Nyamu who is gunning for kitui Senatorial race in 2022 represented the Attorney General on the case on behalf of the Government.
Justices Imaana Laibuta, Fatuma Sichale and Mbogholi Msagha said on Wednesday, December 15, that, in early April next year, they will rule on Kinoti’s appeal, challenging his four-month jailing by the High Court.
Kinoti argued that the High Court refused to listen to his side of the story, which stated that he (Kinoti) was not the custodian of Jimi Wanjigi’s firearms and that the Firearms Licensing Board should have been questioned.
Mr Nyamu has been very instrumental in the corridors of the court successfully representing high-level individuals in Kenya, he is running for Kitui senatorial race in 2022.
