Gladys Shollei released on KES 600 000 cash bail

24 August 2015, 21:40 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – The former Judiciary Chief Registrar, Gladys Shollei has been charged with abuse of office and released on KES 600 000 cash bail alongside other six ex-Judiciary staff.

Shollei denied the charges of irregular purchase of a house worth KES 310 million for Chief Justice Willy Mutunga before Principal Magistrate Felix Kombo.

She denied granting a benefit to Johnson Nduya of Muthama Holdings Limited from whom the Runda residence was purchased in addition to failing to comply with procurement laws in management of Judiciary’s funds as accounting officer.

Shollei’s lawyer, Paul Ng’arua's appeal to Kombo to lower his client’s bail on grounds that she has been out of work since her sacking by the Judicial Service Commission in 2013, was thwarted.

The six other include Shollei’s former deputy Kakai Kissinger, members of the tender committee; Martin Okwatta, Benedict Omollo, Wycliffe Wanga, Thomas Oloko Atak and Nicholas Mbeba who were each released on silimilar KES 600 000 cash bail.

They also denied having been involved in an unplanned for project, breaking procurement laws and defying recommendations of evaluation committee on accepting the lowest bid for the Mutunga’s residence.

The case will be heard on September 7, 2015 and ruling made upon transfer of files from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
