Mombasa, KENYA: A Briton charged in Mombasa for possessing bomb materials has been sentenced to four years imprisonment.

Jermaine Grant was found to be in possession of explosive materials namely acetone chemical, Hyrogen peroxiode chemical, Ammonium nitrate, Sulphur sublime container and four size ‘AA’super batteries and eleven centimeter piece of electric conducting wire.

“Balancing the foregoing, I will impose a sentence of 4 years imprisonment for the count in which the accused is convicted,” ruled Chief magistrate Evans Makori.

Court ruled that the chemicals and fuse that were found could be used to make explosives.

Grant was arrested on 20 December 2011 at Kisauni in Mombasa County.

His wife Warda Breik Islam was acquitted since she had only visited Grant’s house where the chemicals were found once.

The court ruled that there was no evidence to prove if she had been in communication with Grant.
