Eight students of Ambira High school who have been in police custody for allegedly insulting Cabinet Secretaries Amina Mohamed (Education) and Fred Matiang’i (Interior) have been released on a free bond.

The students, who were arrested after a video of them hurling insults and claiming they cheated on their exam went viral, appeared at Ukwala Resident Magistrates Court.

Senior Resident Magistrate Gladys Adhiambo directed that the students must appear before Ugunja DCIO’s office when summoned until their case is determined.

The students who were charged with offense of being public nuisance contrary to section 94 of the penal code, have been in police custody from last week after the prosecution requested for more time to complete investigations.

The prosecution had told the court that on the 21st November 2018, the students jointly with others who were not in the court were captured in a video clip while hurling insults at the two cabinet secretaries and also claiming that they had cheated in this year’s KCSE examinations.

The clip was widely shared on social media and drew the attention of education stakeholders and police, leading to their arrest.
