SK Mbuga’s wife denied bail in fraud case
Justice Margret Tibulya of the Anti-Corruption Court dismissed Ms Chebet’s application for bail, reasoning that all five sureties presented were not substantial.
“The sureties presented and their station of life is not appropriate to the bond required. Considering that the applicant (Chebet) jumped bail and fled another jurisdiction, the application is hereby disallowed,” said Justice Tibulya in a ruling read by Chief Magistrate Pamela Lamunu Ocaya.
Ms Ocaya further remanded Ms Chebet to Luzira Prison until March 27 upon State’s submission that investigations into the case were still ongoing.
