Court makes ruling on Dusit attack suspect

Court issues ruling as probe over attack continues

Kenyan High court.

A Nairobi court on Thursday ruled to detain insurance agent Zipporah Wambui Karanja for 15 days after she was arrested as a suspect over the Dusit terror attack.

The agent was alleged to have secured insurance for two vehicles that were used by the attackers.

Mlimani High Court last Tuesday, had ruled that Sakina Mariam Abdalla, mother to Ali Gichunge, who was believed to be the leader behind the attack, be detained for 30 days.

Principal Magistrate Martha Mutuku further stated that the detainment would help the police complete investigations.

Abdalla had told detectives that the last contact she had with her son was in 2016, where he had informed her of his plans to study Islamic religion in Somalia.

On January 18, five suspects had been presented before Justice Mutuku.

The suspects had been identified as Joel Nganga Wainaina, Oliver Kanyango Muthee, Gladys Kaari Justus, Guleid Abdihakim and Osman Ibrahim.

Mutuku had granted police orders to have the five detained for 30 days to facilitate investigations into the tragedy that claimed 21 lives.

Two of the suspects are taxi drivers who had been claimed to have transported the Alshabaab militants to various location and to the hotel on the day of the attack.
