'Broke' Nairobi Aviation students fail to pay bail

05 February 2015, 12:57 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A High Court judge has reduced the bail demand for Nairobi Aviation College students currently in custody from KES 200,000 to KES 5,000 after they failed to pay.

The students, protesting an expose carried by a local television station had been charged and released on a bail of KES 200,000.

The 12 students were charged Tuesday by resident magistrate Pamela Mugure, who handed a different student a bail of KES 300,000 for being found with a stone in his possession.

But High Court Judge Luka Kimaru Thursday reduced the bail to KES 5,000 after all the students failed to pay the bail.

The students denied charges of unlawful assembly and malicious damage to city property, as they were among hundreds of students who protested outside Nairobi's Nation Centre over an expose by TV station NTV alleging that their school hands out fake certificates to persons who have not attended classes.

According to their charge sheet, the students blocked Kimathi street for hours carrying banners and smashed doors and windows using rocks, and hurled abuse against Nation Media Group's journalists.

They also injured five news reporters and a passerby during the protest.

" They simply cannot pay such an amount because they are not well off," John Mwita, a friend of some of the jailed students told News24 Tuesday.
