Nairobi Speaker Mutura Granted Bail After Plea Taking Is Deferred

This follows his arraignment before a Nairobi court for theft charges.

He, however, did not take a plea following an application filed by his defence team seeking to stop the process after he produced an order stopping his prosecution.

Through his lawyer Dancun Okach, Mutura also sort for the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the office of the Attorney General or the Inspector General of Police to be stopped or restrained from arresting, detaining, pursuing or confining him.

Mutura is facing theft and it is alleged that on diverse dates in February 2022 at the Nairobi County Assembly, he stole over Ksh 5 million which is the property of the county government of Nairobi which came into his possession by virtue of his employment.

Mutura had presented himself to the DCI headquarters at around 11 am on Thursday accompanied by his lawyer and was detained overnight before being presented in court on Friday morning.

Appearing before Senior Principal Magistrate Esther Kimilu, the court further directed Mutura not to interfere with investigations and wait for the conclusion of a mention from the High Court on 9th of May.

The case will be mentioned on the 16th of May.
