Magistrate praised for denying NYS scandal suspects bail

Kenyans online have heaped praise on Anti-Corruption court Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti for denying the National Youth Service (NYS) scandal suspects bail.

The 22 suspects linked to the Sh469 million NYS scandal were denied bail on the basis that the economic crimes charges against them are serious crimes and compelling enough to deny them bail.

Mr Ogoti said the court had made arrangements for speedy trial hence the accused will now remain in remand until its conclusion.

Online, Kenyans celebrated the ruling, arguing that the suspects should remain in custody so as not to tamper with investigations.
