A Nairobi court Wednesday sentenced three men to terms ranging from 41 years to life in prison for abetting the massacre of 148 people by Al-Shabaab militants at Garissa University in 2015.

Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi handed a lifetime sentence to a Tanzanian national and 41 years in jail for his two Kenyan co-accused convicted of carrying out the terrorist attack.

In his ruling, Mr Andayi said that even though the intension of perpetrators of terrorism acts is to divide souls, those who do such things must be punished.

‘HELPLESS VICTIMS’

He pointed out that lives were lost and members of the public left in fear and rage, and that more other attacks have happened on the Kenyan soil since the Garissa University one.

He also pointed that this could be the first case in Kenya in which many lives were lost, has gone to trial and has finally reached its completion while considering all procedural rules.
