The Principal of St Stephen’s Girls School in Machakos John Kyalo and others not in court have been charged with incitement to violence among other offenses.

Kyalo while appearing before Machakos Court Magistrate Evans Kaego denied the assault and causing bodily harm to a KTN camera person Boniface Kirera and reporter Caroline Bii, together with others not before court charges.

He has since been released on a Sh1 million bond with a surety of a similar amount.

Six students were during the incident injured and taken to a Machakos hospital where they are recuperating.

The case will be mentioned on June 18.
