Wanjigi bribed activist with Sh5m to frame Kinoti

Business thug Jim Richards Wanjigi alias James Bond attempted to bribe a Jubilee activist Mike Makarina with Sh5 million to trap the Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti and subsequently have him jailed.

The activist, who is also chairman of Person Living with Disabilities in Meru County, claimed he was promised Sh5 million to hide documents in order to put Kinoti behind bars.

Speaking in a video, he indicated he got involved as the parties (Wanjigi and Kinoti) were his mutual friends.

Makarina was called upon to mediate the dispute over the return of guns seized by police from Wanjigi home as they had agreed to settle the matter out of court.

It was during these meetings that the alleged documents were signed, and the DCI's persecutors reportedly want to hide fearing they may acquit Kinoti. 

The activist claimed that he was promised Sh5 million if the scheme matured to fruition. 

"They promised to give me Sh5 million and I already received Sh150,000. The Sh150,000 is for fuel to take the documents to them for Kinoti to be jailed," the activist claimed.

Makarina went on to affirm that he would appear in court, on Monday, November 22, to present evidence supporting his case, stating that he has the documents and the recordings to support his case. 

"I will show the evidence of how much they sent and offered me so as not to give out these documents anywhere,” he stated in the interview.

He further claimed that senior government officials had been roped in and were in support of the DCI’s ejection from office.

The development came after Kinoti was sentenced to four months at the Kamiti Maximum Prison by Justice Anthony Mrima for being in contempt of court. 

Following his sentencing, the top sleuth has come out to dismiss a petition that has been filed at the High Court seeking conservatory orders against those issued by Justice Antony Mrima.
