Court denies bail to a person with no specific aboard

Republic v Morombi Sankare Setek

High Court of Kenya at Nakuru

Criminal Case No. 5 of 2014

H A Omondi J

May 16, 2014

Reported by Teddy Musiga and Getrude Serem

Issue

  1. Whether a herder with nomadic tendencies was entitled to bail pending trial.

 

Criminal  practice and procedure – bail and bond – bail pending trial – circumstances when bail can be denied – compelling reasons as to when one can be granted bail -  whether a herder with nomadic tendencies and no specific home was entitled to bail – whether  being a herder with nomadic tendencies amounted to a compelling reason not to be granted bail

Held:

  1. Bail was a Constitutional right which could only be denied if there were compelling reasons.  These may include considerations as to whether the accused was likely to attend trial if released (this was actually the primary consideration).  Other factors to consider were whether he was likely to interfere with witnesses, and his own security if released.
  2. Although one may have a home in a specific county it is at times no specific place i.e. village, centre or school.
  3. If he was a herder, then the other issue of concern would be whether his profession inclined him to nomadic tendencies when in search of pasture and water – certainly such a scenario would make it very difficult to trace a suspect.
  4. This was a compelling reason to persuade one not to be granted bail because he may not return for trial.

Application dismissed
