BY NAMULONGO PETER/CORRESPONDENT,27TH JULY 2018-Former Nyandarua governor Daniel Waithaka and two other former county officials have been released on Sh10 million bond each with surety in corruption charges facing them.
The three are facing charges over a fraudulent Sh50 million water and sewerage tender. Others are Grace Gitonga and Kihiu Gichinga.
Nakuru Chief Magistrate Josephat Kalo said the prosecution did not provide enough evidence to show how freeing the three on bond would affect the case.
The three were arraigned in a court in Nyandarua on Friday morning but they did not take plea as the court referred their files to Nakuru, citing lack of jurisdiction.
While releasing them on bond, Mr Kalo declined to give the accused the option of paying cash bail.
The magistrate also issued warrants of arrest against five other suspects in the same case.
The case will be heard fully before the Nyahururu court.
