(KDRTV) – Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo has questioned the heavy bail slapped on Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi.

Sudi was released on a Ksh 500,000 cash bail on Ksh 1 million bond by the Nakuru High Court on Friday.

Mutula Kilonzo claims the bail is so heavy considering that the same judiciary has been showing leniency to terror suspects. He branded judges unpatriotic.

“Kenya’s Magistrates are becoming unpatriotic. Why should Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi pay Ksh 500,000 while Al Shabaab detainees are accorded leniency?” Jnr questioned through a tweet.

The youthful senator was referring to an incident on Friday in which three Westgate terror attack suspects complained about the quality of food at Kamiti Prisons.

Liban Abdulahi, one of the suspects, told Magistrate Francis Andayi that the beans and kales meal was affecting him. He also said the porridge did not have sugar. He said he has been taking bread and some little milk as his main meal.

The magistrate asked the prison administration to look into the complaints and file a report within 10 days.

Back to Oscar Sudi, the lawmaker was released after challenging, a lower court’s ruling to detain him for seven days pending investigations into the five offenses he is facing.

High Court Judge Joel Ngugi ruled that the lower court did not have grounds to hold the lawmaker for seven days on flimsy grounds.

“The reason to hold the applicant for 7 days will not risk public order peace and security, what is the logic of his continued detention? This is not rationally related to the risk alleged,” the judge explained. He also said that the State had failed to prove how the MP would interfere with witnesses.

Reacting to the ruling, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen described the lower court’s ruling as rubbish.

Most Kenyans have praised the High Court for granting Oscar Sudi bail, saying it is what the rule of law requires.
