By Antynet Ford

Murder suspect Allan Ochieng famously known as Hype Ballo  has been released on a bond of Sh500,000 and four sureties of a similar amount.

Alternatively, Ochieng will deposit a cash bail of Sh500,000 to regain his freedom during trial.

The court set additional bail terms that Ochieng must comply with upon his release from prison including reporting to Kîkûyû DCI offices on the first day of every month until key witnesses in the case testify.

Other conditions include being physically present in the court during all hearings, providing full details of the contact person who will be contacted by the court to avail him, should he skip trial, and being under the supervision of his area chief in Kibra Sub-county until the case is heard and determined.

Ochieng was on April 22 charged with murdering Kintosi on March 16 in Kikuyu Sub County of Kiambu contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the Penal Code.

He denied the charges before Justice Dorah Chepkwony.

The office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) opposed Ochieng’s release on bail and bond terms through prosecution Counsel Jeniffer Ndeda.

The ODPP wanted a social inquiry of Ochieng to be prepared by the Department of Probation and Aftercare Services before the suspect is released.

Ochieng was arrested with six others including DJ Joe Mfalme and three police officers at Kîkûyû police station who were released after investigations, and listed as witnesses in the case.

Kitosi was the deputy Dagoretti DCI commander until his death.
