The High Court has suspended criminal proceedings against businessman Jimi Wanjigi that are currently before a Nyeri court.
Justice George Odunga issued the temporary order after Mr Wanjigi made an application to stop his prosecution following summons issued to him to appear in the lower court.
According to the judge, Mr Wanjigi’s case proves abuse of office.
“A stay of the criminal proceedings in the Nyeri court or any other concerning the subject matter is hereby granted,” said Justice Odunga.
Through lawyers James Orengo, John Khaminwa and Nelson Havi, Mr Wanjigi sued the Inspector-General of Police, the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Attorney-General.
