Slain cleric Aboud Rogo’s wife jailed for 10 years


Mombasa.KENYA: The widow of slain Muslim cleric Aboud Rogo was on Friday sentenced 10 years imprisonment for participating in a terrorist attack.

Hania Said Sagar was found guilty of communicating with the three slain women who attacked Mombasa Central police station in September 2016.

Senior principal magistrate Diana Mochache ruled that prosecution had proved beyond reasonable doubt that Mrs. Sagar communicated with Tasnim Abdullahi Farah one of the slain attackers at the police station five days prior the attack using a new airtel line she had registered three months before.

“All the above actions creates a reasonable ground for believing that the accused person was part of the conspiracy.All the wrongful acts that were done by Tasnim and other two slain girls are attributed to her,’’ruled Ms. Mochache.

Aboud Rogo was killed by unknown assailants at the Bamburi junction along Mombasa Malindi highway in August 2012.
