Four women were on Thursday charged at the Mombasa Law Courts with being members of Al Shabaab militia group.
The four women who had intended to cross over to Somalia and join the terror group as jihadi brides denied the charges and further asked to be released on bond.
Prosecutor Eugene Wangila who was sitting in for the matter was however reluctant to release them on bond since there were chances that they could attempt to flee to Somalia again.
Ms Ummulkheir Sadri Abdalla, Ms Khadija Abibakar Abdulkadir, Ms Maryam Said Aboud and Ms Halima Adan Ali placed the country under terrorism threat just before they were arrested at Elwak on the Kenya-Somalia border.
The police on the other hand have intensified the manhunt for Al Shabaab terrorists who are suspected to be hiding in the country.
Intelligence teams working together with military intelligence have already nabbed four top Al Shabaab commanders in Kenya.
These terror groups have caused restlessness in major parts of the country, with an interest in Northern Kenya, Nairobi, Coastal region and other parts of Eastern Kenya.
