  • An arrest warrant has been issued against businessman-cum-presidential aspirant Jimi Wanjigi and his wife Irene Nzisa.

    The charge sheet seen by Kenyans.co.ke also ordered the arrest of six other people in connection to a contested piece of land in Nairobi.

    Wanjigi, his wife and the six suspects are facing conspiracy to commit a felony and title deed forgery charges. 

    The businessman and his wife, however, swiftly obtained a counter order stopping police from apprehending them.

    Wanjigi narrated what transpired in the late night raid at his Kwacha Group of Companies offices in Westlands, Nairobi on Monday, January 17.

    The billionaire told the press that officers believed to be from the DCI raided his offices demanding to take him in for questioning.

    He explained that the law enforcement officers forced their way into the compound dressed in protective gears similar to those used by health officials while responding to medical emergencies.

    The businessman stated that he found their methods flawed after they refused to wait for his lawyers and insisted on him recording a statement.

    The businessman's supporters also camped at the gate chanting anti-DCI slogans.

    Reports had indicated that the DCI instructed Wanjigi, Nzisa, John Nyanjua Njenga and Caroline Njoki, be charged with obtaining Ksh56 million from Kenroid Limited.

    The Ministry of Lands was also entangled in the mucky land saga where two people are holding title deeds for prime property in Westlands.

    Sleuths from the Land Fraud Unit in the DCI claimed the accused pretended they were in a position to sell a company 0.3314 hectares of land located along General Mathenge road in Westlands.

    The DCI recommended charges against the Registrar of Titles, Fredrick Lubulellah. He will be charged with four counts of making false entries in a land document.
