The Director of Criminal Investigations (DCI) George Kinoti will know whether or not he will be imprisoned on Monday, November 29.

Justice Antony Mrima who ordered Kinoti’s imprisonment over failure to heed court orders declined to set aside his decision instead stating that he will deliver his rulling on the matter on next week.

Mrima further stated that he still expects his orders to be complied with even though he will give his final rulling on Monday.

Earlier this week, Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki filed a petition at the High Court seeking for the suspension of the sentence that would see Kinoti serve 4 months at the Kamiti Maximum Prison.

Judge Mrima gave the DCI boss a 7-day-window to surrender himself to prison which has already lapsed.

The DCI boss was sentenced to 4 months imprisonment for contempt of court. Kinoti was accused of failing to return firearms that had been seized from businessman cum politician, Jimi Wanjigi.

Wanjigi had accused DCI boss of failing to give him back his guns despite court orders.

The businessman has maintained that his firearms are in the custody of the DCI boss and not the firearm licensing board.
