1.The 2nd accused, Bernard Mutie Muthani has filed this application dated October 14, 2022 seeking revision of the terms of bond as set by this court on 30.8.2021. He has proposed to be released on a cash bail of Kshs 50,000. The prosecution has opposed this application on grounds that there has been no change of circumstances of this case as to justify the revision sought.
2.I have considered the above submissions. I have also considered the fact some of the co-accuseds have already secured sureties and are out on bond. In the circumstances, I find that it would be in the interests of justice that the terms of bond be revised in favour of accused 2.
3.Considering the nature of the charges herein, I revise the orders issued herein on August 30, 2021 and order that the 2nd accused may now be released on a bond of Kshs.1million with 1 surety of a similar amount or an alternative of Kshs 100,000. All the other terms of bond shall remain as earlier ordered. Orders accordingly.
