Reprieve for Amos Kimunya as Court Gives Direction in Ksh60 Million Case

Amos Kimunya a former leader of the majority in the National Assembly can now savor the relief of receiving a Ksh700,000 cash bail in the reopened Ksh60 million land fraud case.

His two co-accused were released on Ksh1 million cash bail each per the order of Chief Magistrate Lawrence Mugambi of the Milimani Courts.

The attorney for Kimunya had appealed with the court to give his clients some time to process the shock of the allegations against them being dropped.

In accordance with section 210 of the Criminal Procedure Code the defendants were previously found not guilty (CPC). The High Court decision to overturn it surprised everyone and the accused are in disbelief. They require time to process the verdict Magistrate Mugambi a lawyer

Chief Magistrate Mugambi also turned down a request to give magistrate Felix Kombo more time to work on the case.

Instead Mugambi commanded Kimunya and his co-accused to show up in front of Magistrate Peter Ooko on October 31 to begin the hearing.

The High Court overturned Kombo decision in this case because it was erroneous or unfair. In my opinion a different court should hear this case.
