MBATTLED EX-CITY GOVERNOR MIKE MBUVI SONKO now wants court to refund his sh 15 million cash bail citing financial constraints.
In his fresh application seen by the media, Mr. Sonko wants to get his money back in exchange with other assets as security so that he can settle some domestic bills.
“I am asking the court to be allowed to deposit security in place of the cash bail to enable me access the money for purposes of attending to my health, paying school fees for my young ones, pay my lawyers and cater for my daily needs and those of my family,” Sonko said.
In the argument, he noted that he has no any other stable source of income after his accounts were frozen by the Assets Recovery Authority ARA over reported city crimes.
To persuade the court to allow the refund processed, Lawyer Philip Kaingu said Sonko is not a threat to anyone and is not planning to boycott court proceedings as required by court.
“The graft cases against him have proceeded well with more than 10 witnesses which means there is no risk of him absconding court. It is in the interest that he be allowed to substitute the cash bail to enable him fend for his family,” remarked Kaingu.
The ex-governor averred in his affidavit that, out of the sh 15 million, he only raised 5 million while the rest were donations from friends and family members.
Sonko was on December 2020 charged with conspiracy to defraud public coffers through multi-million kickbacks that amounted to sh 39 million from tender-preneurs who were trading with his government.
