Ngirita’s unexpected confession after Court ordered her release

The Ngirita's have shocked the Court.

Lawyer Cliff Ombeta on Wednesday complained in court that the decision to have his client’s accounts frozen has rendered them cashless, making it hard to access the money to facilitate their release.

Bank Accounts of Ann Wambere Wanjiku Ngirita; her brother, Jeremiah Gichina Ngirita; mother, Lucy Ngirita and sister Phyllis Ngirita were frozen last week by the High Court which is listening to the case.

High Court Justice Hedwig Ongw’undi said in her ruling on Tuesday that they would be released on condition that they pay a bond of Ksh.5million, cash bail of Ksh.1million and a Ksh.2million surety.

“How are they going to finance their case and they have no access to their accounts? The State is also snooping in our accounts. This is not fair and you need to give us directions to this too,” Defense lawyer Cliff Ombeta said on Wednesday.

“Are those accounts going to be exhibits in court and why are they taking our client’s cars?” Mr Ombeta further posed.

Set of conditions

Troubled Ngiritas have urged the court to vary the orders but indicated that they are willing to abide by all the other directives issued on Tuesday.

The Judge ordered that the applicants and the co-accused deposit their travel documents with the court.

They are also not supposed to leave the jurisdiction of the Nairobi Chief Magistrate without prior orders.

Further, the accused persons are also not allowed to go to their former offices unless accompanied by an officer.

The NYS suspects are also expected to refrain from making contact with any of the staff or witnesses lined up by the Prosecution.
