Kinoti sentenced to a four-month jail term at Kamiti

The High Court sitting in Nairobi has sentenced the Directorate of Criminal Investigations boss, George Kinoti, to a four-month jail term at the Kamiti Maximum Prison. Justice Anthony Mrima sentenced Kinoti on Thursday, November 18, for contempt of court.

Kinoti was sent to prison after the court found him guilty of contempt after failing to return a firearm confiscated from businessman and presidential hopeful Jimi Wanjigi. The Judge ordered Kinoti to surrender to prison authorities within seven days to commence his sentence.

The case involves seven guns confiscated from Jimi Wanjigi’s home. In 2019 the High Court ordered the state to return Wanjigi’s firearms to him.

The court had on February 14, 2021, found that Wanjigi was licensed to possess the guns and ordered Kinoti to return them. However, Kinoti did not follow the court orders and hence the sentencing that was made by the Judge presiding over the case.
