The court released the students who denied the allegations on a Ksh. 100,000 bond, with the requirement of a surety of the same amount or a cash bail of Ksh. 50,000.

The prosecution asked for a postponement of the facts and did not raise objections to the bond conditions.

Mundia ordered the two to wait until the court appoints a pro bono attorney for the third defendant before discussing the facts.
