Two city residents have been charged for attempting to destroy public property during Governor Mike Sonko’s inauguration.
The two Stephen Maina Mburu and Patrick Karumba were arrested by officers from Central Police Station, after they were informed that the duo had damaged a huge water tank constructed near a public toilet located near the National Archives.
The intention was to pave way for a private developer.
According to the prosecutor the accused wanted to destroy the property and lay claim to the site.
They denied the charge before resident Magistrate C. M Njagi and were ordered to deposit a cash bail of Sh 50,000 or bond of Sh 100,000 each to secure their release.
Proceedings resume September 5 and November 1 2017.
