Businessman Jimi Wanjigi has been freed after the Milimani Law Courts directed on Wednesday that a case challenging his arrest and prosecution be heard first before he faces new fraud-related charges.

Wanjigi was arrested from his Kwacha House offices in Westlands, Nairobi on Tuesday evening and taken to Kamukunji Police Station, where he spent the night.

He is accused of fraudulently acquiring the land accommodating one of his companies, Aureum Limited.

Prior to his arrest, he had obtained a court order barring his arrest and prosecution until a matter he’d filed in court is dispensed with.
