Former Kenyan police officer denies trying to join Al-Shabaab

A former GSU officer has denied the charge of attempting to sneak into Somalia through an illegal point while in Mandera Town for an unknown mission.

Mr. Karutha Githaiga, 33, appeared before Mandera Resident Magistrate Dancun Mtai.

The Anti-Terror Police Unit, through the State counsel Kennedy Amwayi, opposed the release of the suspect on bond.

Mr. Githaiga said he visited Mandera to eke a living.

ATPU will be investigating Mr. Githaiga’s visits to Nairobi, Voi, Lamu, Malindi, Garsen, Garissa, Elwak and Mandera, which they termed suspiciously.
