Court frees two activists charged with taking part in unlawful demonstration
Today before Magistrate Susan Shitumbi at Milimani Law courts, the office of the directorate of public prosecution moved the court with a lobby to withdraw charges against two activists.
Davis Mulandi Malombe and Julius Kamau Kimani were charged in 2019 with taking part in unlawful assembly contrary to the Law.
According to the charges submitted in court in 2019, the two activists were arrested on June 19,2019 at Freedom Corner along Kenyatta Avenue in Nairobi attending an unlawful demonstration.
They were also charged with rioting after proclamation having been made commanding persons engaged in a riot to disperse at the expiration of a reasonable time.
At the time of arraignment, the two denied particulars of the charges.
The prosecution informed the court that they had received instruction to withdraw the charges against the accused persons.
