Toyo Advocate, representing  Aga Khan University Hospital, objected to the release of the suspects on bail pending trial claiming two of the suspects failed to appear in court on several occasions to plead to the charges.

Lawyer Kibiru Jenga representing the accused persons pleaded with the court for leniency claiming his clients will attend court when required. 

“After considering the mitigation for bail from the suspects’ advocate and also considering that the prosecution has not objected to releasing of the suspects on bail, I hereby release the suspects on a bond of Ksh700,000 or alternative cash bail of Ksh300,000, ” judge Esther Kimilu ruled.

The matter will come up for hearing on February 7, 2022.
