NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 15 – Fifteen suspected members of the Mungiki have been charged in a Nairobi Court with forcible entry into a multi-million shilling property in Upper Hill, Nairobi while armed with crude weapons.
George Ngigi Wahu and 14 others however denied committing the offences on January 13, 2016 with others not before court.
According to the charge sheet, they allegedly entered LR No 209/208/1/3 Nairobi in order to take possession.
The property belongs to Plovers Haunt Limited.
They faced another count of being armed in public contrary to the law, in a manner meant to cause fear to the directors of Plovers Haunt Limited.
They also denied a charge of threatening to cause violence by intimidating directors of the firm and that of forcibly possessing the land in a manner likely to cause breach of peace.
They have been freed on a cash bail of Sh20,000 or a bond of Sh100,000 each with a surety of similar amount.
The case is due for hearing on February 25.
