High Court Judge Yasin Nyanzi is expected today afternoon to rule on whether to or not to grant bail to jailed businessman Mathew Kanyamunyu who is accused of murdering Kenneth Akena.

The other two suspects in the case, Cythia Munwangara and Mathew Kanyamunyu were released on bail in March.

Last week through his lawyer, Evans Ochieng, Knayamunyu made a third attempt at bail.

In the second failed attempt before Justice Yasin Nyanzi, was when his co-accused were freed.

Kanyamunyu however was denied bail on among other grounds, the possibility that he would interfere with investigations.

Last week he presented to court four sureties and expressed willingness to surrender in court his land title as well as his passport.

He also argued that although he was committed to High court for trial, there is no sign  that his case is about to be fixed for hearing having spent 195 days on remand after committal yet the law states that any person who spends 180 days before commencement of his trial court will release him on conditions it considers reasonable.
