Treasury CS Henry Rotich, his PS Kamau Thugge and 26 of their co-suspects have been released on bail with tough conditions during the period of their case.

Rotich and Thugge were released on condition that they provide Sh50 million bond with the option of depositing Sh15 million as cash bail.

East African Community PS Susan Koech was given a Sh30 million bond with the option of Sh6 million cash bail.

The other suspects were given Sh10 million bonds with the alternative of Sh2 million cash bail each.

Nairobi Chief Magistrate Douglas Ogoti gave touch bail conditions - including a requirement that the accused will not visit their offices during the period of their trial.

They will also be required to avoid any form of communications with potential witnesses in the case relating to the Kimwarer and Arror dam scandal.

Further, Rotich and his team are required to deposit their passports before being released.

The court will hear the matter on 8th of August 2019.

Ogoti's ruling declaring the National Treasury as a scene of crime that should not be visited by Rotich and Thugge further added to the current crisis as the sensitive ministry is devoid of its top leadership with the exception of Treasury CAS Nelson Gaichuhie.
