Homa Bay County: Three suspects facing murder charges have been given Sh45 million bond by Homa Bay High Court.
Reuben Muma, Zachary Aseda and Nelson Ochieng’ were awarded the bond in which each of them is expected to pay Sh15mllion or a surety of similar amount.
The trio were charged with murdering Fred alias Jakoti in Oyugis town, Rachuonyo South District on July 30 this year.
Lawyer George Okoth, who represented the suspects, requested the court to release them on bond, saying their families depended on them.
Lady Justice Esther Maina argued that it was a constitutional right of the suspects to be given the bond so that they attend court proceedings from home.
“There is no compelling reason to deny them a bond because their advocate requested for it,” Maina said.
The suspects failed to raise the body, and were remanded in Homa Bay prison. The case will be heard on November 7.
