Munga granted bail but still in jail
Despite being offered bail, dancehall entertainer Munga Honourable, will spend the weekend in jail.
Munga, whose given name is Damion Rhoden, was offered bail in the sum of $500,000 when he appeared before the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court yesterday.
As condition of his bail, the entertainer has surrendered his travel documents. He is to report to the police three times per week and a stop order placed at all ports.
"The orders are customary with a crime of this nature. However, no curfew order has been made because of the nature of his profession which may see him at times performing into the hours of the morning," his lawyer, Christopher Townsend, told THE STAR.
Townsend said that Munga, who has already spent 28 days in jail, is yet to take up his bail.
"Persons are getting together their documents together. The bail process will continue into next week. All being well, it will be completed early next week and he will be out," Townsend said.
Munga has been charged with the murder of Cleveland Smith in Jackson Town, St. Andrew.
