The High Court has granted Sh1 million cash bail to Ms Nancy Indoveria Kigunzu, aka Mathe Wa Ngara.
Nancy who was arrested in August 2023 has been in custody since then after the JKIA court denied her bail. The suspect was arrested and brought to court at the end of August for alleged drug trafficking worth Sh18.3 million.
After appealing to the High Court through his lawyer Danstan Omari, Judge Diana Kavedza allowed his request and ordered him to place his travel documents in court.
He then gave him a bond of Sh3 million with one surety and a cash guarantee of Sh1 million. Two weeks after her arrest, Nancy was denied bail on the grounds that she was a flight risk due to her alleged involvement in drug trafficking.
He had filed for bail because he allegedly had a medical condition that required constant attention and medication, further stressing that if he was denied bail, his condition would worsen.
