Bungoma man “James Bond” who hung on chopper granted bail
A man who hung on a helicopter last week in Bungoma has been released on cash bail of Sh30,000 by a court after being charged with endangering his life.
Saleh Wanjala, 41, was seen hanging on the landing gears of a helicopter that was carrying the body of slain businessman Jacob Juma.
Senior Principal Magistrate Stephen Mogute, gave Mr Wanjala, who was charged with endangering his life contrary to the Aviation Act, a cash bail of Sh30, 000 or a bond of Sh100, 000.
He is expected to be back in court on June 6, when the case will be heard.
Mr Wanjala hung on the chopper from Posta Grounds to Bungoma Airstrip where he jumped off as the aircraft descended.
He sustained injuries on his hip, legs, hands and face and will continue receiving treatment while free on bond.
His cash bail was posted by businessman Joseph Waswa through the Lendrix Foundation on Friday morning.
