Kenyan Govt Loses Court Fight to Arrest Odinga's Financier

This comes after state security forces raided and broke into businessman Jimi Wanjigi's house for what government spokesman Erick Kiraithe said was in the "interest of national security". The case will be up for hearing on December 8. Wanjigi is reportedly a key financier of Raila Odinga's National Super Alliance party and has played a key role in its campaigns.
