Four Jamhuri High School students were on Tuesday charged with assault and causing bodily harm during a school fight on Tuesday, January 23.

The four, who appeared before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi at Milimani Law Courts, pleaded not guilty to the counts and were freed on a Ksh.20,000 bond each.

They had asked the court to be lenient on them since they are Form Four students and are set to sit for their final exams later in the year.

The magistrate, however, directed their parents to sign a guarantor’s form to ensure that the four appear in court for trial.

This comes after the institution was closed indefinitely on Wednesday, January 24 following a brawl pitting two factions of students against each other.

In the knife attack, 35 students were critically injured.

The brawl was triggered by claims of religious discrimination on some students by the school’s administration.
