In Summary
  • The girls who died  in the tragedy are Esther Neema, Nancy Wamuthuri Thuku, Hanna Jeyso Timado, Hawa Haziz, Mary Njengo Mokaya, Alakiir Malong, Natalie Asiko, Whitney Kerubo and Marcia Okello.

A student of Moi Girls School-Nairobi has been charged with the murder of her nine schoolmates.

The girl appeared before High Court judge Luka Kimaru on Wednesday in proceedings that were conducted in camera.


She faced nine counts of murder.

She denied all the charges and the judge directed the prosecution, the girl’s defence lawyers and her parents to appear before him on Friday to determine whether she will have deposited Sh200,000 in court and met conditions set to secure her release.

The student, who was accompanied by her parents, was presented in court just a day after bodies of the nine girls were identified through DNA tests.
