EALA MP Hon Simon Mbugua and three others have been released after spending one night in police custody over allegations that he was involved in an assault of Nairobi CBDA chairman Timothy Muriuki.
The three were remanded since their arrest on Tuesday in connection with the April 30 assault on former NCBDA chairman Timothy Muriuki.
The three appeared before senior principal magistrate Martha Mutuku where they denied a charge of robbery with violence.
The magistrate directed the three to deposit their National Identity cards in court.
Lawyer Cliff Ombeta representing the accused asked for bail that the prosecution asked the magistrate to grant with stringent bail terms.
The magistrate said even though the allegations against the three suspects are serious, there was no evidence in court to suggest they are a flight risk.
She further said there is no evidence to the effect that they will interfere with witnesses.
The magistrate observed that the prosecution did not oppose the release of the three on bail.
She granted the suspects a Sh500,000 bond and one surety each as an alternative to the bail.
“Although the allegations are serious, they remain innocent until proven guilty,” Mutuku said in her ruling.
