According to Taifa Leo Newspaper, the two are also reported to have robbed the complainant of all the money he was begging on the streets of Nairobi leaving him with nothing to depend on.

However, the two pleaded not guilty to violating the rights of the 14-year-old complainant.

The Milimani Resident Magistrate Zainab Abdul was told by Prosecutor Everlyn Ongunga that the two usually carry the complainant in their car daily to Shauri Moyo, Nairobi where they usually drop him by the roadside to beg.

This comes as a number of people linked to similar businesses have been arrested following an increase in the cases along the streets of Nairobi. The victims are disabled people whose mode of payment at the end of the day is reportedly a single day's meal.

Judge Abdul ordered the two to pay a bond of KSh300,000 each. Their case will be mentioned on 6th October this year.
