An application to reduce a Sh2 million bond imposed to three young men linked to grenade attacks in the country was yesterday rejected by a Nairobi court.
The suspects, Abdallah Ahmed Kioko, Tuwa Ibrahim Djibrill and Lenox David Swaleh made the application through their lawyer Chacha Mwita.
They claimed they come from poor families and cannot raise the money. Senior principal magistrate Lucy Mbugua said the terms of the bond are reasonable.
Mbugua dismissed the accused request for orders to compel police to release their original medical report indicating treatment on injuries they allegedly received while in police custody.
She said there is no evidence that the accused were tortured by the police. On October 19, the accused were granted Sh2 million bond each or cash bail of Sh1 million each pending the hearing of the case.
