Miracle babies: Court rejects bond request

Nairobi Chief Magistrate Aggrey Muchelule has declined to vary bond terms for four people charged with stealing babies.

Muchelule said no basis has been made to vary the terms of Sh1 million to a surety of similar amount.

Rose Kiserem, Miriam Nyeko, Michael Odera and Eddah Odera had, through their lawyers Cliff Ombeta and Odhiambo Wakla, urged the magistrate to vary the terms, saying they were unable to meet conditions.

Kiserem, Nyeko, London-based evangelist Gilbert Deya and his wife Mary are charged with stealing an unnamed child, Naomi Deya on or about February 5, this year.

Archbishop Deya was charged in absentia and a warrant of arrest issued for him to appear in court. His wife is out after managing to raise bond of Sh1 million with a surety of same amount.
