BY NT CORRESPONDENT.
Telecommunications giant Safaricom has been accused of sabotaging Garissa University terror inquiries.
The Managing Director as a result has been summoned by court tomorrow afternoon to explain the reason behind alleged ”endless failure to cooperate with prosecution.”
Office of the Director of Public Prosecution accused Safaricom of sabotaging a terrorism case where five people are charged over the Garrisa University terror attack that claimed 149 student lives for failing to avail a engineer to explain the mobile data they submitted in court.
Safaricom liaison officer Inspector Rabala and superior liaison officer Weldon Siongok have also been summoned.
Senior DPP Mr Duncan Ondimu told the court that Safaricom has not been cooperative because it had promised to avail an engineer from December last year but in vain.
“My effort to get in touch with general officer Weldon Siongok and Inspector Rabala has also been in vain” said Ondimu.
Prosecution accused Safaricom of treating the criminal matter casually despite of the seriousness of the matter.
Mohamed Ali Abdikar, Hassan Aden Hassan, Sahal Diriye, Osman Abdi and Rashid Charles, a Tanzanian, denied 162 counts of terrorism and have been ordered detained until June 11, when the court will rule on their bail terms.
The prosecution opposed their release on bail, noting that they were suspected Al-Shabaab terrorists and their release may prejudice the trial.
