27 May 2013, 15:15
A form-four student from St. Emoru mixed Secondary School in Kitale was on Monday morning arraigned before the Nakuru law court on robbery with violence charges.
It was alleged that the student, together with his accomplice who was not before the court, carjacked a Toyota Corolla vehicle belonging to John Nga’nga on 14th of May.
The accused is said to have stolen the car worth KES 450 000 and a Nokia phone worth KES 1 500 at Ngata bridge in Nakuru County before disposing off the car in Kitale.
The student was arrested at his school in Kitale on Friday but the police officers are yet to trace the missing car.
The form-four student denied the charges and was remanded back to cell until the 31st of May when the police are expected to complete the investigations.
Meanwhile, more than 50 children from the slums area in Nakuru town benefited from a free medical camp organized by one lobby group on Monday morning.
Addressing the media, David Mwangi who was the coordinator of the event said that the medical camp was targeting mostly children between the ages of one and ten years.
“This medical camp is all about helping these children from slum areas,” he said.
Mwangi further pointed out that there was a pediatrician from Singapore, Dr. Lim, who had been brought in to treat the children.
He added that water borne diseases are a major problem in the County and one that needed the intervention of the County Government.
“Most of the cases that we have been able to deal with today were water borne diseases and that’s why the County Government has to act quickly to solve this matter,” he noted.
