Again Kenyans on Twitter are waging war on the Judiciary for what they refer to as ‘selling justice to the rich’.

Using the hashtag #JusticeForSale, netizens have strongly called out the Judiciary for being lenient to some cases while acting tough on others.

For instance, Embakasi East legislator Paul Ongili, alias Babu Owino, who’s release on bail has generated controversy across the country, with many questioning the ‘strange’ terms he was given before his release.

In a quite unusual bail ruling, Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi directed that Ongili’s Ksh.10 million cash bail be paid in four instalments of Ksh.2.5 million in four months; further, that the lawmaker would only be released after paying the first instalment of Ksh.2.5 million.

DPP said though courts have the discretion to give bail conditions as per the Constitution, the ruling delivered on this matter is highly questionable.

“There is more than meets the eye. Babu Owino is on a free bond and let someone come and correct me if I am wrong,” said the DPP in an interview with The Standard.
