An anti-corruption court has ordered Ann Ngirita to be held in custody until she secures another surety to stand for her in the Sh468m NYS graft case.
The order was issued by Magistrate Eunice Kagure after one Stephen who had given out his property as surety for Ngirita chose to withdraw the surity.

Kagure said the Court lacks the power to force anyone to continue acting as a surety as it is a voluntary act.
The development comes barely a week after Ngirita announced her entry into politics.
She announced that she would vie for the Nakuru woman MP seat.
She made the announcement after joining the ruling Jubilee party where she was welcomed by party officials in Nakuru.
Her entry into politics sparked reactions forcing the party to issue conflicting reports.
