K10,000 bail granted to Wobiro and friends

Bail of K10,000 each has been granted by the National Court for Western Governor Ati Wobiro, Provincial Administrator Dr Modowa Gumoi and boss of Fly Care Foundation Inc. Norman Carl May.

The National Court granted bail for the three after they showed exceptional circumstances. Bail was allowed after conviction pending the sentencing of the three.

Justice Panuel Mogish this afternoon allowed bail after medical reports produced before the court came from reputable medical practitioners and specialists.

He also allowed bail after considering the affidavit of Bomana Jail Commander, Superintendent, Haraha  Keko, that the CIS facility at Bomana was very basic and unable to accommodate, treat and monitor patients with heart conditions.

The court granted bail after considering the medical history of the three and the fact that their treatments are ongoing and active.

Bail was granted after they spent 10 nights at Bomana.
