A Bungoma man who has been accused of hanging on a moving helicopter, endangering his life and that of those on board has pleaded not guilty in a Bungoma court on Wednesday.
38 year old Saleh Wanjala denied the offence before Principal Magistrate Stephen Mogute.
He was charged with endangering his life and that of the pilot and passenger on board by hanging hazardously on the moving helicopter.
He denied the charges and was given a free bond, PM Mogute giving police more time to amend the charge sheet to determine the bond term he should be given.
The case will be heard on Friday 20th May 2016.
Wanjala sustained several injuries after he hanged at the plane carrying the remains of the slain businessman Jacob Juma at Posta grounds last week.
He was later admitted at the Bungoma referral hospital where he has been recuperating since he was injured.
The chopper was carrying the body of slain businessman Jacob Juma whose body was to be viewed briefly at Bungoma Posta grounds before being flown to his Mungore home in Bumula constituency.
Wanjala is now recuperating at the Bungoma referral hospital nursing various injuries on his back and hip joint on one of the legs.
