DPP wins as father and son are found guilty of terrorism

Another win just days after Al Shabaab was sentenced to 15 years in jail

DPP wins as father and son are found guilty of terrorism for aiding notorious extremist Fazul Mohammed

Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has received another boost after two people, a father and his son, were found guilty of terrorism by a Malindi Court.

The two were found to have breached anti-terrorism laws after the knowingly hosted Al-Qaeda operative Fazul Mohammed who masterminded Nairobi US embassy bombing in 1998.

Mohammed, a Comoros-born extremist, was known as a master forger but an expert in the art of disguise, and managed to escape police for over ten years.

In 2008, he escaped a police dragnet in a large, two-storey building in Malindi where he had been living and plotting terror attacks in the region.

He was killed in 2011 in Somalia.

The conviction of Mohammed’s accomplices comes a few days after an Eldoret court on Friday sentenced a man to 15 years in jail after he was found guilty of being an al Shabaab member.
