Home » Sonko to spend more time in JAIL

Nairobi governor Mike Sonko is not out of the woods yet as more nights await him in police cells while his bail gets processed.

This even after Anti-Corruption Magistrate Court set him free on a KSh 30 million bond or a cash bail of KSh 15 million earlier in the day.

Barely hours after he was released by Magistrate Douglas Ogoti, the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) revealed that the county boss will have to spend more time in jail after he failed to process his bail by close of business on Wednesday.

“Governor Sonko to remain in custody awaiting court processing of KSh 30 million bond with one surety or KSh 15 million cash bail,” a tweet by ODPP reads.

His co-accused and business entities contracted by the county hence the charges are also awaiting processing of KSh 30 million bond with sureties of KSh 10 million cash bail.

Zipo has established that as the court ruled on his bail, his handlers had the money in court but a directive to deposit it in Kenya Commercial Bank made matters complicated because of the large sums involved.

The flamboyant politician is accused together with other city officials over irregularities in procurement and payment of contracts amounting to over KSh 357 million.

Sonko has been in the news since Friday, December 6, the day the Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji ordered for his arrest.
