Seven students of Kisumu Girls High School were on Monday arraigned in court to answer for charges of causing disturbance and malicious destruction of property at the institution earlier this month.

Appearing before Kisumu Chief Magistrate Julius Ng’arng’ar the seven girls pleaded not guilty to the charges.
