Last week, Gethenji lost control of the upmarket estate following a prolonged court battle.
The former MP and his co-accused are said to have broken a door leading to a server room.
They are also accused of chasing away Wells Fargo security guards manning the estate on October 16, 2019.
The complainant, Gitahi Gethenji (Ndung’u’s brother) is said to have contemplated withdrawing the case but later abandoned the plan prompting the DPP to prosecute the case.
The suspects have been released on Sh10,000 cash bail.
