DCI summons Jimmy Wanjigi in a fresh guns row

The Directorate of Criminal investigation  has ordered businessman turned politician Jimmy Wanjigi to surrender 11 firearms, 485 ammunition held illegally in the next  72 hours.

In a statement DCI says Wanjigi must surrender the weapons  failure to which he will  be arrested.

The DCI further faulted Wanjigi for failing to appear before the Firearm Licencing Board on November 26 last year for the vetting.

Among the firearms the businessman is accused of illegally possessing are a CQ, Glock, Ceska pistol, Shotgun, Glock 19, and a Gilboa.

Wanjigi is further required to present himself to the DCI headquarters within the same duration, failure to which he will be liable to prosecution.

Wanjigi has been in a court fight with the DCI after it was ruled that DCI Director George Kinoti failed to obey court orders to  return guns confisticated from him.

Last month security officers stormed Wanjigi’s office in Westlands after a warrant of arrest was issued in a land debacle. 

Wanjigi in his latest move politically, has been battling to get the ODM presidential ticket against Raila Odinga.

The latest information indicate that ODM party has denied Wanjigi access to its forthcoming National Delegates Convention (NDC) claiming that he is not a party delegate. 

This is after Wanjigi on Sunday claimed that he is an ODM delegate from Nairobi and will be attending the NDC slated for 25th and 26th February.
