Kenyans living in the US have organized a fundraiser to raise money for a Kenyan teenager who is currently in custody.
19-year-old Michael Kuria is accused of an offense that could see him spend the rest of his life behind bars if found guilty, according to reports.
The Kenyan community in Washington state is seeking to raise legal fees amounting to $33,850 to ensure he gets proper legal representation.
Kuria, who recently finished high school, lives in Washington together with his 16-year-old sister who has been working to rent a place for him in case he is granted bail.
His parents live in Kenya and are unable to travel to the US to help their son, say organizers of the fundraiser.
