REPUBLIC OF KENYA
IN THE HIGH COURT OF KENYA
CRIMINAL CASE NO 23 OF 2015
R U L I N G
1. The Accused KMN is a minor aged 14 or 15 years. He is charged with murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the Penal Code. It is alleged in the information dated 10/06/2015 that on 17/05/2015 in Murang’a South District of Murang’a County he murdered one MWN. On 17/06/2015 he pleaded not guilty. His trial, initially set for 20/07/2015, is now scheduled to commence on 10/11/2015. He has in the meantime applied to be admitted to bail pending trial. The Republic has no objection.
2. I have perused the witness statements and other documents supplied to the Accused and to the court by the prosecution. I have noted the circumstances of the alleged offence. The Deceased in this case is the Accused person’s younger sister. Prosecution witnesses will include the Accused’s parents, siblings and other close relatives. I therefore deemed it necessary for the Accused’s parents to come before the court so that assurances can be given regarding where the Accused is going to stay if released on bail and arrangements as to his schooling (he was in school when arrested and charged).
3. The parents and other relatives appeared before the court today and the necessary assurances were given to the satisfaction of the court.
4. I will in the circumstances admit the Accused to bail. He shall be released upon the cognizance of one surety who is not a prosecution witness in this case. It is so ordered.
