25 February 2015, 12:39 Philomenah Chebet

Kwale - Two men who appeared before a Kwale court Tuesday facing charges of engaging in unnatural sex acts and trading in pornographic materials have been freed on a KES 200 000 bond each.

According to the charge sheet, the duo; George Njeri and Caleb Idris, committed the acts between February 2 and 17 at Tandoori area in Ukunda, Mombasa County, alongside another person not in court.

The court was told that the suspects were found with two CDs containing obscene pornographic material intended for "public exhibition" on February 18 within the coastal town.

Njeri and Idris, who appeared before Kwale resident magistrate, Christine Njagi, however denied the two charges.

Martin Pepela from the Kenya Human Rights Commission, who represented the two, asked the court to give Njeri and Idris reasonable bail terms, noting that the two men were not in a good financial position.

“My clients look unwell and they have constitutional rights to reasonable bail. They need to seek medical attention and enjoy their rights as any other Kenyan citizens,”  said Pepela.

Kwale resident magistrate, Christine Njagi fixed the hearing date of the case on May 16, where she will determine the matter.
