The release of Mugo wa Wairimu on a Sh 5 million bond had Kenyans on Twitter raging mad. Last month, a Citizen TV expose caught the fake doctor raping unconscious women who had come to his clinic for gynecological services. The judge, however, put a caveat on the bond saying that should Mogo attempt to contact witnesses in the ease against him, the bond will be cancelled. Justice Daniel Ogembo’s ruling made a majority of Kenyans unhappy. One Twitter user wondered if the courts are so broke that they should release a man suspected of rape. Others supported him saying that every Kenyan has a right to be released on bond.
The issue of bond has been a sticky one in Kenya especially last year and early this year when Kenya was hit by a wave of terror attacks. Many terror suspects were released on bond never minding the carnage and bloodshed they left in their wake. Deputy President William Ruto was on record when he questioned why terror suspects should be released on bond.
