Gilbert Deya's release from Kamiti suffers setback
He is accused of stealing children
High Court Judge Justice Luka Kimaru in his decision said that Deya is a flight risk and ordered that he remains in custody as he gave the prosecution an additional 90 days to conclude the trial.
In December last year, Milimani Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi directed that the preacher execute a bond of Sh1 million and two sureties of a similar amount, after he had been in custody for 3 months.
Deya is facing five counts of stealing five underage children, offences that were allegedly committed between May 12, 1999 and August 19, 2004 from a house in Nairobi’s Mountain View Estate.
He is accused of depriving unknown parents their lawful custody of the children because he possessed and harbored them unlawfully.
The evangelist was extradited to Kenya after he was accused of five counts of child stealing in the United Kingdom.
