Eight girls from the Maasai Girls’ secondary school were today arraigned in a Narok court charged with instigating a strike on October 26, 2021.
The eight who were charged in private since they are minors were accused of causing chaos in their school by shouting and awaking their fellow students so that they could join them in a strike.
The court heard that the girls were suspended from school on November 9, 2021 and have been at home as the investigating officers were compiling evidence against them.
All the girls, who were accompanied by their parents, pleaded not guilty before Narok Chief Magistrate George Wakahiu.
The parents, through their lawyer, prayed to the court to release the girls so that they can go back to school as they have already missed a lot on academic programmes.
Narok Chief Magistrate Wakahiu released the girls on a personal bond asking the parents to ensure the children appear in court on the set dates.
The case will be mentioned on December 10, 2021.
