Youth who participated in Monday CORD’s anti-IEBC protests have been charged with disturbing the city’s peace.

The fifteen were charged with three charges of unlawful assembly, going to the public while armed with stones and creating disturbance in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace.

They denied the charges and were freed on a Sh50, 000 bond or a cash bail of Sh3000 each by chief magistrate Daniel Ogembo.

The youths had earlier admitted to the charge of participating in the protests but later changed their prior stand following an intervention by Cord coalition lawyers Anthony Oluoch and Harun Ndumbi who asked them to deny the charges.

CM Ogembo also ordered police to produce another suspect Albanus Munyao, who is hospitalised, on Thursday.

The case will be heard on July 21.
