Four people charged over the April 2, 2015 Al-Shabaab attack at Garissa University College have a case to answer, a court ruled on Tuesday.

The four are Rashid Mberesero, Sahal Diriy Hussein, Hassan Edin Hassan and Muhamed Abdi Abikar.

The court acquitted acquitted Osman Abdi Dagane, who was a watchman at the institution, saying there was no evidence linking him to the attack.

The five had denied a total of 156 counts over the morning attack that left 148 people, mostly students, dead.


The charges include committing a terrorist act, conspiracy to commit a terrorist act and being members of a terrorist group.

Mr Mberesero, a Tanzanian, faces a further charge of being in Kenya illegally.
