Nairobi - The Star reports two activists who were charged with breach of peace during Labour Day celebrations have pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Boniface Mwangi and Richard Amwai who allegedly tried to heckle Cotu secretary general Francis Atwoli during Labour day celebrations are to be released on a KES 5000 cash bail each.
They had initially declined to take a plea when they appeared before chief magistrate Waweru Kiarie yesterday. Their lawyers, Harun Ndubi, B Lemba and Chaha Muita said the charges had not been read out to their clients. They said they will go to the High Court for an interpretation of section 94 (1) under which Mwangi and Amwai had been charged.
