Kenya: Four Deny Wrecking Mvita Road Beacons

FOUR people were yesterday charged with interfering with the construction of the controversial Mwembe Tanganyika course road in Mombasa. Rubeya Abdalla, Thureya Bukhait, Awadh Saidi and Mohammed Ali denied interfering with the survey of the road's boundaries.

The four were accused of destroying two boundary beacons erected by land surveyors at the construction site. Chief prosecutor Samson Kiptum asked the court to bond the four until the case is heard and determined.

Chief magistrate Stephen Riech imposed a Sh100,000 bond on each of them or an alternative Sh 20,000 bail. The construction of the Mwembe Tanganyika road has been stopped several times by a seven year protracted court battle. The cabro road is funded by the Mvita CDF.
