Mathe Wa Ngara denied bail in her ongoing cannabis case.

Nancy Kigunzu, known as ‘Mathe wa Ngara’, has been denied bail in her ongoing case.

The court said in its decision on the bail application that the woman is a danger to the kids due to her involvement in selling bhang.

Judge Njeri Thuku said that granting her bail was not in the interest of justice.

Mathe and the third defendant, Eugine Jumbo, who was also denied bail, will continue to be detained until the case is heard and decided.

Meanwhile, her co-accused, Teresia Wanjiru, has been given Ksh. 50,000 cash bail. However, she will be required to provide the contact information of two people, one of whom is a blood relative, and appear before the JKIA law courts within seven days to submit a social report.

‘Mathe Wa Ngara’ has been detained since her arrest on August 21 in connection with a drug bust in Ngara Nairobi, where Ksh.13.4 million in cash was also seized.

Kigunzu, who collapsed during a bail hearing on Monday, told the court that her health condition requires constant monitoring and medication, and that she fears that if she is denied bail, her condition will worsen.

While in front of judge Njeri Thuku, Kigunzu denied claims that she is dangerous and that she will avoid court cases.

Through her lawyer Danstan Omari, Kigunzu said that although she was arrested in the downtown area of ​​Nairobi, her children were arrested in a residential house, questioning that she has a house and the police know about it.

She also denied claims that she will interfere with the witnesses in the case, saying that all the witnesses are police officers and she has no authority to interfere with them.

Also present in court were Kigunzu’s co-accused Teresia Wanjiru and two others, who also wanted to be released on bail.

Through their lawyers, the defendants say that the prosecution has not established the basic reasons for allowing them to remain in custody.
