Cases Jaswant Rai Has Withdrawn After Ruto’s Warning

Businessman Jaswant Rai has withdrawn four cases he had filed in court against Mumias sugar company. According to Citizen TV, Rai who owns West Kenya’s sugar company has already issued three notices to the court of appeal and another one to the high court seeking to have the cases withdrawn.

The move comes a few days after he was kidnapped and released by unknown people in Nairobi last week.

During the kidnapping, his vehicle was abandoned on the road, only for the police from Kilimani to tow it to the station after they were informed of an abandoned vehicle, a Toyota Land Cruiser V8.

The decision by Jaswant Rai to withdraw the cases has also come after President William Samoei Ruto over the weekend accused him of being one of the people standing in the way of plans to revive Mumias’s sugar company.

The head of state went ahead and asked the people who had cases in court against the company to withdraw them.

Jaswant Rai’s statement however elicited uproar from his critics led by Azimio la Umoja one Kenya alliance party leader and the Law Society of Kenya who argued that Cases in court should be heard and determined without intimidation.

Rai’s withdrawal of cases is likely to elicit an interesting debate going forward especially coming after the warning by the president.
