  • He was arraigned in court alongside Hamida Kibwana, who was released on the same terms, while Smith & Ouzman’s local agent Trevy Oyombra had to part with Sh 1 million to be freed on bail.

Three key suspects in the multimillion-shilling Chickengate scandal, among them former electoral commission chief executive officer James Oswago, were on Wednesday taken to court for fresh charges.
