The businessman is also said to have defaulted on an obligation to pay Sh854, 008 in 2014. The prosecution, led by Cynthia Opiyo, asked the court to consider the amount of money that KRA has lost when granting Abdifaisal bail. “We have no objection to the accused being granted bail. But we want the taxes lost to be taken into consideration,” said Ms. Opiyo. Abdifaisal’s counsel told the court that he would wish that his client is granted favourable bail terms and that his client was not a flight risk, and would attend court without fail.
The case will be heard on October 29, 2019.
