The notice was to be served upon Soweto and company advocates and the AG. Mwita had ordered the state to return Wanjigi’s seven firearms, arguing that the latter acted irrationally by carting away the guns while he still held a valid licence to keep them. The judge ruled that Wanjigi’s rights were violated by the respondents. “The actions by the respondents were unlawful and actuated by malice. The court grants orders that all firearms be returned to the plaintiff,” Justice Mwita ruled on June 21.

Police Inspector Maxwell Otieno claimed Wanjigi’s firearm licence had been revoked for allegedly threatening members of the public with the guns.
