Kenyan billionaire Mr. Jimi Wanjigi has spoken after the two day police raid in his home ended. Speaking to journalists, Mr. Wanjigi said that his family, including his ageing father suffered under the raid which was totally uncalled for.
He went further to mention that were it not for National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga ‘Baba’, his family would have suffered more from the aggression of the police. He thanked his lawyers including James Orengo for stepping in to help his family. He ended the speech by saying that his support for Baba remains unwavering and unshaken.
The raid ended this morning, on 18th October following what Mr. Wanjigi says was Odinga’s intervention.
The statement left many Kenyans on social media expressing what they felt about the whole ordeal.
