Two men have been charged with burning down their neighbour’s house in Kieni West.

Joseph Wanjohi and Hassan Abdi appeared before Chief Magistrate Wendy Kagendo and denied burning down Esther Ndegwa’s property valued at Sh680, 000.

They were said to have committed the offence on March 30. Lawyer Kimani Ngunjiri asked the court to grant his clients bail of Sh30, 000, saying they were prepared to attend their trial.

The duo was released on a bond of Sh100,000 or cash bail of Sh60,000.
