Maseno University administration has denied that a suspected Al-Shabaab recruiter by the name Samuel Wanjala Wabwile alias Salim Muhamud Wabwile is a student at their University.

While testifying at Mombasa law courts before Principal Magistrate Diana Mochache, Director of Student Affairs Edward Otieno previously Dean of Student at Maseno University told the courts that Wabwile  was expelled from the institution on 22 February 2012 by the disciplinary committee.

Otieno said Wabwile was expelled while in second year after involving himself in a fight with his fellow student Moses Irungu who he stabbed.

The court heard that Wabwile who was an Ustadhi at Masjid Jihad at Gandani Gotani in Kaloleni where he had recruited six pupils was expelled from the university in February 22 2012 after stabbing Maurice Irungu Mwangi with a kitchen knife.

However,  Wabwire claimed he was expelled for 1000 days and the days were almost over a fact  Otieno denied saying there was no such law in existence.

Last week six pupils recruited into the terror group told the court how Wabwile taught them that Non-Muslim were infidels who deserved to be killed.

Parents also narrated how the accused had converted some of the pupils from Christians to Muslims without the parents’ consent.

State prosecutor said that Wabwile had informed the court in 19 June 2015 that he was still a student of Maseno University and was due to sit his end of semester exams a fact the former dean of students denied.

Wabwile formerly a Maseno University student is accused of recruiting six primary pupils into the Al-Shabaab in july 2015.
