A Mombasa magistrate has refused to withdraw from a case in which a man is linked to recruitment fraud at the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Kenya Prisons Service.

Senior principal magistrate Henry Nyakweba told Rajab Mwamchera Shaban he cannot recuse himself from his case on the basis of refusing to release him on bond.

The magistrate had canceled Mr Shaban’s Sh300,000 surety bond following an application by the prosecution that while out on bond he committed similar criminal activities.

Mr Nyakweba directed that the matter will proceed for hearing as scheduled on November 11.
