Embattled businessman Jimi Wanjigi and his wife, Irene Nzisa, Tuesday obtained reprieve when the High Court ordered the police to refrain from destroying his assets or having him arrested.

Justice Enoch Chacha Mwita also granted Mr Wanjigi an anticipatory bail of Sh50,000 while ordering the police to cease from threatening him with arrest.

The judge, however, directed that this temporary reprieve remain in place until Thursday 11.00 am when the court will hear the case.

“Having considered the issues raised, I am satisfied that this case has substantial constitutional legal issues which ought to be considered. In the meantime, Mr Wanjigi deserves protection of the court,” said Justice Mwita.
