Businessman Jimmy Wanjigi got a reprieve after the court halted a request to review his bail terms.
The High Court dismissed an application by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) which was seeking to enhance his bail terms.
Justice Chacha Mwita dismissed the application that wanted the court to increase the anticipatory bail by Sh50, 000.
“An application by the DPP lacks evidence or any prove to warrant the issuance of the orders sought,” said judge Chacha.
Mr Wanjigi is being investigated for possession of firearms but he has since obtained temporary orders stopping his arrest.
He was also granted an anticipatory bail of Sh50,000.
On December 8, 2017, the DPP complained that the amount granted to Wanjigi was below the magnitude of the offense being investigated against him.
“Wanjigi should also be stopped from leaving the country without getting permission from the police and or the court pending completion of the investigations,” added Victor Mule
Wanjigi Lawyer Julie Soweto said the police are only mischievous and claim that they are investigating Wanjigi in relation to possession of illegal firearms which is untrue.
