The Constitution of Kenya does provide for the right to bail for arrested persons, however, there are no clear guidelines to govern the granting of bail and bond for corruption cases. The discretion has been left at the hands of the court to decide the amount of bail and bond to be granted to those arrested for corruption. This is a challenge as the cases have increased over time. There is, therefore, a need for clear legislation that will govern the courts. Through a keen study of past precedent in Kenya, it has been realized that indeed there is a gap that needs to be filled by legislation regarding the bail and bond for corruption cases.
