Details Emerged Reveals Why Gachagua Wants Cash Bail To Be Replaced With Title Deeds

Kenyans are being urged to use their title deeds as bail in court proceedings rather than cash according to Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua.

The DP stated at a conference in Kilifi County on December 1 that the judiciary which charges cash bail for misdemeanors and other crimes had a lot of money sitting idle.

He explained that in order to promote development, the funds needed to be released into the economy.

Gachagua added that the move could help the nation's economic problems since the economy had yet to improve.

There is a chance for you to return to court and replace the cash bail when people find themselves in court for criminal matters and they set cash bail due to the urgency of the situation.

He said We can liberate that money to the economy by replacing them with a title deed or log book.

As a result, he exhorted judges and other judicial officials to support initiatives that guarantee Kenyans can use resources other than money to pursue freedom.

Rigathi stated We ask our judges and magistrates to exercise fairness and see how they can facilitate the replacement of cash bail with other forms of security.
