Jimi Wanjigi's Father Blocked From Seeing Son Held at Kwacha Offices (VIDEO)

Jimi Wanjigi, the presidential candidate of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), is being detained at Kwacha Offices by police officials affiliated with the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). He was raided by detectives in the evening of Monday, January 17.

Maina Wanjigi, the politician's father, told Standard Media that he was denied access to his son by cops after he sought to see him. He was escorted by other family members who were enraged by the outcome.

In an earlier interview with local media following the raid, the business mogul stated that the officers did not want to wait for his lawyers and instead wanted him to record a statement.

"Around 9.30 p.m. this evening, we were informed that CID was at the gate. When asked what they desired, they stated that they desired only me. They were asked if they could see a lawyer, and they stated that they could not. They were completely masked and armed with assault guns, "Wanjigi stated.
