The money was part of revenue collected by Narok County government from tourists who visit the world famous Maasai Mara game reserve.

The suspects denied the charges and in mitigation, their defense lawyer Martin Ole Kamwaro accused the police of holding them in custody for more than 24 hours before arraigning them in court.

He also applied for affordable bail terms saying the accused were civil servants of Narok County government.

They were released on a bond of KES 1million with a surety of a similar amount. Their case will be heard on September 23.
