THREE supporters of the Mombasa Republican Council arrested on Monday may sit for their examinations at Shimo la Tewa prison if they will not be granted bond next week.
The three are part of 36 people arrested in a police swoop that culminated into the arrest of MRC chairman Omar Mwamunuadzi. One sat for the Arabic oral Kenya Secondary Certificate Examinations at the prison on Tuesday.
Shimo La Tewa prisons boss Margret Chuma said preparations are underway. Shimo la Tewa is an examinations centre. "We also have two standard eight candidates," she said.
"We are working hand-in-hand with Kisauni district education officer to ensure we have a clear record of all those that need to sit for their exams in the prisons.
Two are charged with consorting with an armed person, that is the MRC chairman. One of the standard eight candidates was charged with being in possession of offensive weapons in the Tana Delta violence.
Meanwhile, Muslim for Human Rights yesterday condemned the manner in which police conducted the raid and the death of Kombani assistant chief Salim Omar Change.
They wrote a letter to the chairman of the Independent Police Oversight Authority Macharia Njeru in protest. "We have received complaints from the public and the relatives of the arrested people that the police overstepped their mandate and went ahead to harass, torture and violate the rights of the arrested persons," read part of the letter signed by Muhuri boss Hussein Khalid.
