Woman among 10 MRC suspects arraigned in court

06 February 2013, 08:40 Alloys Musyoka

Ten suspects who were allegedly arrested taking an oath at Dabaso area in Watamu were on Monday arraigned in Malindi court where they denied the charges.

A middle aged woman was among the ten who appeared before senior principal magistrate Liza Gicheha where they were charged for allegedly taking oath in preparation to boycott general election against the constitution.

Prosecutor Jacob Ngao told the court that the ten were found on February 2, 2013 at Dabaso village in Watamu within Malindi district with others who were not before the court taking the oath.

The court further heard that police were informed by members of the public who had already started arresting some of the suspects after they found them at the bush.

The prosecutor added that the police arrested the ten as others escaped before they were taken to Watamu police station and later escorted to Malindi court.

The officer investigating the case Roy Mwaura urged the court not to give bonds to the suspects claiming that they may continue participating in criminal activities.

However, the prosecutor told the court that it was constitutional right of the suspects to be freed on bonds adding that if they pay the  court should allow them to be free.

"We cannot hold suspects since the constitution allows them to be free on bond," he told the court.

The magistrate then released the ten on a bond of KES 1 million each and surety of the same amount.

The case to be heard on February 18,  2013.
