A University of Eldoret student has been charged with robbery with violence before an Eldoret court.

Josea Rono, with other persons not before the court, confronted Rebecca Chelagat, also a student on February 22, and forcefully took her phone and money.

Appearing before Chief Magistrate Charles Obulutsa, Rono pleaded not guilty to the charges and sought for lenient terms.

“The charges are false and I was not rightfully brought to court. Consider granting me lenient bond terms. I want to continue with my studies as the case proceeds,” Rono pleaded.

The case will start on March 7.

Elsewhere, a 15-year-old boy was charged with colluding with his elder brother to rob Stephen Kipchumba of Sh9,800, in the process injuring him on February 24.
