November 3, 2022
1.The accused herein, Namoni Leseuwa, is charged with murder contrary to sections 203 and 204 of the Penal Code. It is alleged in the information dated September 21, 2021 that on June 9, 2021 at Pokoden open air market in Samburu Central Sub-County within Samburu County, he murdered one Kamshina Leketei. On October 19, 2021 he pleaded not guilty to the charge. His trial is scheduled to commence on August 11, 2022. He has in the meantime asserted his constitutional right to bail pending trial. The Republic has no objection to the accused being admitted to bail.
2.I have read the witness statements and documentary evidence, copies of which were supplied to the accused and the court by the prosecution. I do not find in them any compelling reason to deny the accused his constitutional right to bail enshrined in article 49(1)(h) of the Constitution of Kenya, 2010. I will therefore admit the accused to bail upon his own cognizance in the sum of KShs 500,000/00 plus one surety in like sum. It is so ordered.
