Senator Ole Kina Freed On Ksh.100K Bail

The fiery Narok Senator Ledama Ole Kina has been freed on Ksh. 100,000 cash bail after he denied charges of ethnic contempt.

He appeared  before Milimani Chief Magistrate Martha Mutuku for questioning who dismissed the Senator’s application challenging the charge sheet.

According to the court, the objection lacked merit,“I find that the court is called upon to consider it a charge is known in law….court has jurisdiction to hear the application …the charges are proper before the court,” she said.

Further, the Magistrate noted that issues raised can be dealt during the main hearing of the case.

“On the issue on charging the station that aired the content and those involved should have been charged court rules that the ODPP is independent and can’t be directed in who to be charged and not to be charged,” the Magistrate said.

Ledama was charged with one count of ethnic contempt and pleaded not guilty.

Prosecution then asked the court to bar the Senator from commenting on the case adding that they were not opposed to his release on bail.

The court then ordered his release on a cash bail of Ksh. 100,000 and ordered him not to comment on the case until the matter is heard and determined.

For further direction the case will be mentioned on 30th July.
