11 Students Sentenced With Ksh1 Million Bail Over Strike

11 Chesamisi Boys High School students were sentenced with a cash bail of Ksh1 million over their involvement in a school strike that led to destruction of property.

Students who were appearing before Justice Gladys Odhiambo of Kimilili Law Courts, got charged with damaging property worth Ksh7.5 million in total.

Furthermore, the judge directed for the birth certificates of the 11 be presented in court to ascertain whether they are children or not.

The prosecution was also asked to supply the students' attorney with copies of charge sheets and witness statements.

The case will be heard next on January 25, 2022. The students will be held at Kimilili Police Station children's cells until they complete the bail terms issued by the court.

Cases of students destroying property in schools have been on the rise in the last several months.

George Magoha, education Cabinet Secretary and his Interior cabinet Fred Matiang'i are currently pushing to reintroduce caning in schools.

The two cabinets argued that corporal punishment would control the ever-increasing cases of indiscipline and schools unrest in the country.
