Blow for EX-CS Ukur Yattani as court declines to grant him anticipatory bail

Former Treasury CS Ukur Yattani suffered a set back on Tuesday after the court declined to grant him anticipatory bail.

Yattani had filed an application seeking for anticipatory bail saying that saying that investigations against him are malicious.

The judge declined to grant orders but directed that all parties in the case to appear in court on June 14 for inter party hearing.

He is apprehensive that the actions of EACC are borne of malice ,ill will and bad faith and the court should protect him .

“To this end, the Applicant seeks the interpretation of the court of the scope of the 3rd respondent’s (Milimani chief magistrate) duty in considering ex parte (EACC’s) applications for search warrants and whether the 3rd Respondent judiciously exercised its discretion in granting the search warrants in the manner that it did,” reads court papers

The EACC opposed the application saying that there was no threat of Yattani arrest as investigations into alleged loss of 1.2 billion shillings at the Marsabit county government, were still ongoing.
