Kidero released on Sh8m bail, court bars him from trips abroad

Former Nairobi County governor Evans Kidero was on Tuesday freed on a cash bail of Sh8 million or an alternative bond of Sh 20 million.

Four other accused persons charged with him were released on a cash bail of Sh4 million each or an alternative bond of Sh10 million.

The hefty bail was set by anti-corruption court Magistrate Douglas Ogoti.

The four are facing charges relating to irregular payment of Sh68 million to the law firm of Wachira Mburu, Mwangi and Company Advocates.

Magistrate Ogoti also ordered Dr Kidero and his co-accused to deposit their passports in court.

Those with no travel documents were ordered to notify the director of immigration prior to any traveling abroad.

The suspects have also been ordered not to interfere with witnesses in the case.
