In an application filed at the High Court, former Nairobi governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko wants the court to allow him access Ksh15 Million he deposited as cash bail when he was charged with corruption. Sonko said that he is 'broke' and unable to take care of his needs including paying school fees, attend to his health, pay his lawyers and cater for his daily needs and those of his family since his bank accounts were frozen leaving him in a financial meltdown.[Photo courtesy]

Sonko is ready to substitute the Ksh 15 Million cash bail with other assets as security to ease the financial burden on his family. Sonko claims that he has no other source of income but he is ready to surrender three high-end vehicles worth Ksh 30.4 million to the court as securities in place of the cash bail. According to his lawyer, the law allows an accused person to either deposit cash bail or security in a criminal case and that no prejudice will be suffered by the prosecution if he is refunded the Sh15 million.[Photos courtesy]
