W. Mutunga Names The Only Thing That Will Ensure Obedience Of Court Orders, Wanjigi Case In Question

The seizure and arrest of business tycoon and ODM party member Jimmy Wanjigi has been the subject of discussion for the better part of the day in Kenya. Flying squad detectives raided Wanjigi's offices from yesterday night and have managed to arrest him after several hours of house arrest.

However, several politicians, critics and influential Kenyans who have weighed in the issue have condemned the arrest of Wanjigi citing pending court orders barring the state from harassing the business mogul.

This has attracted the attention of the former chief justice Dr Mutunga has named the only thing that will ensure court orders are obeyed in the republic of Kenya. According to Mutunga, the proposal that was made by the sitting chief justice Martha Koome of creating a Judiciary Police Unit is the only way that will enforce obedience of court orders.

This is after the High Court directed that Wanjigi and his wife be free from arrest pending hearing of their guns case, which the police have defied and proceeded to arrest him.
