27 November 2014, 15:22
Nairobi - Five men were arraigned in the Makadara Law Courts Thursday over the stripping of a woman in Nairobi’s Kayole area, two weeks ago.
However, the accused persons did not take plea because one of them is deaf and mute.
The court differed the plea to Friday, when there will be a sign language interpreter to help in the case.
The court heard that the woman was selling boiled eggs at Mihango bus stop when the men, who are said to be touts and were seated there each ordered for boiled eggs.

They then declined to pay for the eggs, and turned against the woman accusing her of being indecently dressed.
They stripped and roughed her up before they escaped as the lady was taken to hospital where she was treated and discharged.
Police on Wednesday formed a special squad to deal with men who strip women in public, following the increase in such incidents.
The Anti-Stripping Squad will be based in Nairobi to deal with such cases.
