The High Court on Tuesday reviewed Embakasi MP Babu Owino’s bail terms from Sh10 million to Sh5 million.

According to Justice Luka Kimaru, the consideration for cash bail to be used for treatment for the DJ was not proper as an accused person is innocent until proven guilty.

The Judge then lowered the cash bail for Embakasi East MP to Ksh.5million from the initial Ksh.10million.

He said the MP will help settle DJ Evolve’s hospital bill only as a moral obligation and not a court order.

Justice Kimaru further noted that Mr. Owino had so far paid Ksh.4.4 million to the court that was to be used in settling the hospital bill and Ksh.600,000 directly to the health facility.

However, he noted, only the Ksh.4.4million will count as bail.

He is to deposit Ksh.600,000 with the court to secure his release.
