The high court has reviewed Embakasi East Mp Babu Owino’s bail terms to Sh5 million cash bail with an alternative of Sh 10 million bond with two sureties of a similar amount.
In his ruling, Justice Luka Kimaru considered that there were no compelling reasons to deny him bail or bond.
This far, Babu has deposited a total of Sh 4.4 million as cash bail. He will, therefore, be required to pay an additional Sh 600,000 to secure his freedom.
The matter will be mentioned on March 20.
Contrary to a lower court order Justice Kimaru has directed that Babu will only help settle DJ Evolve’s hospital bill as a moral obligation.
“THE ACCUSED PERSON SHOULD CONTINUE PAYING THE HOSPITAL BILL AS A MORAL DUTY TO HIM, NOT AS A COURT ORDER…IF HE FAILS TO PAY IT IS UP TO HIM AND HIS GOD,” KIMARU SAID.
