Six men in court for torching Uber taxi

Six men were on Tuesday charged with attempting to murder a driver by burning his Uber taxi at Kirichwa road Nairobi.

The offence was allegedly committed on February 21.

The six face another count of malicious damage to property by burning the car.

The six are Julius Ngumo wa Mwangi, Stephen Mwajiri, Christopher Mutinda Nyagah, Samuel Kinyanjui, Titus Munuve and John Kiiru Chege.

The plea was taken before Kibera senior principal magistrate Benard Ochoi after resident magistrate Charles Ondieki ruled he had no jurisdiction to preside over the case.

The prosecution applied that they be remanded saying another incident involving Uber taxi harassment was reported at Kabete police station and an identification parade was required.

The application was granted.

The accused will be remanded for until Friday when application for bond will be determined.
