A man who hung on the helicopter carrying the body of slain businessman Jacob Juma last week has been released on a Sh30,000 bond.
Saleh Wanjala alias “James Bond” secured his freedom after Bungoma businessman Henry Waswa paid Sh30,000 bond demanded by the court.
On Wednesday, Wanjala denied the charge of endangering his life and that of the pilot contrary to the aviation act.
He was later ordered to be taken to Bungoma hospital until Friday-today- when the court was to determine his bail terms.
Through his lawyer Andrew Kituyi, Wanjala protested why police had decided to take him to Bungoma GK prison from Thursday yet the court had ordered that he be taken to hospital.
“Your honour it is against the constitution that my client was denied a right to medication and sent to prison contrary to the wishes of this court,” Kituyi said.
Magistrate Mungute ordered that the Bungoma OCS and the person in charge of prisons appear on the June 6th during the hearing of the case to answer to the said allegations.
Speaking to journalists after his release Wanjala said he was in need of urgent medical assistance as his broken pelvic bone had put him in pains.
