A woman was yesterday charged for kidnapping a form four student.
It is said that Pauline Isaranua kidnapped the 16 year old boy, a student at St Hannah Boys Academy in Nairobi on the 9th of February at Parklands near MP Shah.
The court heard that the accused held hostage the student and demanded Sh 50,000 from his parents.
She denied the charges before Kibera Acting Senior Principal Magistrate Lucas Onyina.
Through her lawyer Evans Ondieki, Pauline applied for a bail and access to witness statements.
According to Ondieki, his client had been brought to court five days after she was arrested a move he termed as a violation of her rights since the law demands that one is arraigned in court after 24 hours of arrest.
She was released on a Sh 100,000 cash bail.
The case is set to be mentioned on February 26.
