  • Kenya court convicts three over Garissa university massacre

A Kenyan court on Wednesday convicted three people of terrorism-related offences for helping Somali Islamist militants carry out a 2015 attack on a university that killed 148 people, a lot of them students.

But there was sufficient evidence to show that Mohamed Ali Abdikar, Hassan Aden Hassan and Rashid Charles Mberesero participated in plotting and executing of the attack that left 148 dead.

Andayi further acquitted a fourth suspect - Sahal Diriy alias Sahali Diriye Hussein - saying he can not be linked to the attack just because he was found in the company of one of the attackers.

The three were convicted and the magistrate set the sentencing for July 3, 2019.

The court rejected defenses argument that they could not have been co-conspirators yet they do not know each other.

With regard to Mberesero, the Tanzanian, he was acquitted the charge of being unlawfully present in the country but the court wondered why, no official from the University testified in court to confirm whether he was a student.

"I find it intriguing that no official from the university came to testify in this matter", he said.

Prosecutor Duncan Ondimu told the court he will be seeking the maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
