The Shanzu Law Courts has released Pastor Ezekiel Odero on Sh3 million bond or Sh1.5 million cash bail.

Earlier on the prosecution had applied to detain Pastor Ezekiel Odero for 30 days, citing fresh affidavits in a case involving mass deaths.

However, Shanzu Senior Principal Magistrate Joe Omido threw out the application by the State to continue holding him for 30 more days.

The preacher of New Life Church and Prayer Centre had already spent seven days in Police Custody at Port Police.

He has also been ordered to report to a police station once a week or as required by State.

Odero is also not supposed to talk about anything about the Shakahola issue

One of his lawyers Cliff Ombeta had earlier told the Star that they will be asking for favourable bail terms for the client, who has already spent seven days in police custody.

Danstan Omari who is also Odero’s lawyer said they object to such tactics by the State.

“The respondent should be allowed to go home or a charge sheet be produced,” he said.
