Businessman Jimi Wanjigi has written to Inspector- General Joseph Boinnet claiming that police are planning to frame him in fresh criminal charges of dealing with illegal firearms.

Through a team of six lawyers led by Siaya Senator James Orengo, the businessman says there are plans to raid his homes and dump illegal guns.

In a letter dated June 5, the lawyers indicate that the plan is to continue criminally profiling Mr Wanjigi, who is already facing charges of illegal possession of firearms at a Nyeri court.

They claim that police want to profile the businessman as a person of criminal disposition, “through filing of frivolous charges against him in several courts spread across Kenya with a view to hounding and harassing him”.

“Part of the nefarious plan is to dump illegal guns in property associated with him or persons associated with him, with a view to accusing him of having an illegal cache of weapons,” reads the two-page letter seen by the Nation.

The letter was also sent to Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji and National Police Service Commission.
