Video footages have surface online showing armed police officers demolishing sections of Jimi Wanjigi’s posh house in Muthaiga.

The officers in plain clothes are heavily armed with riffles, sledgehammers, bolt cutters and axes.

They can be seen destroying CCTV cameras installed outside the house before forcefully gaining entrance.

In another clip inside the house, an officer can be seen swinging an axe and hitting a door.

As all this is happening, a distraught woman is heard repeatedly asking the officers to state what they were looking for.

One of the men answer her that they are looking for the owner of the house.

Wapi mwenye nyumba?… where is the mzee?” the man inquires.


Officers drawn from the Special Crimes Orevention Unit are searching for Nairobi tycoon Jimi Wanjigi to record his statement over the seizure of five AK assault rifles and ammunition in one of his homes in Malindi.


The businessman reportedly locked himself in his house on Monday to avoid arrest.

The officers drawn from the GSU spent the night at the home in anticipation that he would get out.
