The High Court on Monday ruled that there would no longer be any delays in trial as the group was making a mockery of the court with intent to turn it into a circus.
Suspects were called before the Magistrates Court on March 8, but no one pitched up for the hearing.
Ten of the eleven total suspects are disgruntled over the fact that one of their fellow accused, Patrick Ogolla obtained an order postponing his case.
However, Justice George Odunga said the order does not apply to the entire group.
The following people are accused; Ben Gethi, Josephine Kabura, Anne Waiguru, Jedidah Wangui and John Kago.
Others are Samuel Wachenje alias Sam Mwadim, Anthony Kihara, Paul Gachoka, John Vandamme, Martin Wanjohi and Patrick Ogola.
They are set to appear before the court on March 18.
