Mr Muriuki was attacked at Hotel Boulevard on April 30 this year while he was addressing a press conference on the state of the Nairobi County.

They appeared before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi, who released them on Sh200,000 cash bail and consolidated the case with those of four others charged over the same incident.

The cases will be mentioned on May 23, with the hearing set for July 17 this year.

On Tuesday, the fourth suspect, Mr Brian Shem Owino, was also arraigned at the Milimani court where he denied the charge and was freed on Sh200, 000 cash bail.

The three others accused in the case over the attack are: East African Legislative Assembly MP Simon Mbugua, Mr Anthony Otieno Ombok, alias Jamal, and Mr Benjamin Odhiambo Onyango, alias Odhis. They were also freed on Sh200, 000 cash bail each.
