They were accused that at around 0100 hours at Donholm phase 8 in Embakasi East sub-county within Nairobi County jointly with others not before the court, willfully and unlawfully damaged a perimeter wall belonging to Gidjoy Investment Limited.

The offence allegedly happened on March 27, 2018, at Donholm Phase 8 in Embakasi Sub County jointly with others who were not before the Court.
Principal Magistrate Gilbert Shikwe directed that they be released on earlier set bail terms of Sh 20,000.
