On the 18th of November, Justice Anthony Mrima of the High Court of Kenya made a ruling that divided opinions among sections of Kenyans. The learned judge proved to Kenyans that nobody is above the law by sentencing Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss to four months imprisonment following the arms case that involved him and presidential aspirant Jimmy Wanjigi. Kinoti disobeyed a court order requiring him to surrender firearms belonging to Wanjigi.

Some legal minds such as Senior Counsel Ahmednassir Abdullahi were of the opinion that Kinoti should surrender himself to the authorities while Kinoti on the other hand pleaded with the court to set aside his sentence through his Lawyer, Cecil Miller.

Today, Kinoti has suffered a huge blow thanks to Justice Mrima again who has refused to set aside his 4 Months sentence at the Kamiti Maximum Prison.
