A Venezuelan diplomat in Kenya charged with the murder of his ambassador was granted bail Thursday after nine months in custody, court officials said.
Acting ambassador Olga Fonseca Gimenez was found strangled in her Nairobi home in July 2012.
Dwight Sagaray, who was serving as first secretary at the embassy, is one of seven charged with Fonseca's murder.
Judge Roseline Korir granted Sagaray a bail of two million Kenyan shillings ($23,900, 18,100 euros), as well as the guarantee of two sureties each for the same amount, a court official confirmed.
