Father of a terror suspect who is linked to the twin explosions in two transport buses along Thika super highway two months ago was on today charged before a Nairobi Magistrate court at the Milimani law court for engaging in terrorism activities.
Sar Guracha Harohas denied the two charges of supporting a terror activities and threatening to kill a witness who testified against his son, Warque Dejene Sar, on July 4 where he’s accused of threatening one Paul Karanja Muchiri, a witness who had testified in the case facing his son.
He is accused of uttering the words in Kiswahili and said, “Mbona unatoa ushahidi ndiyo kijana wangu afungwe, nitakuua.”
He was ordered to execute a personal bond of Sh10 million and two sureties of the same amount to secure his freedom or be remanded in custody.
The court heard that Mr Guracha received alleged amount of money Sh85,000, which had been wired to his cell phone for the commission of a terrorism activity in the country.
The charge stated that on May 8 in the Kiamaiko area of Nairobi, he received the money sent through an M-pesa agent identified as Cool Breeze Kakuma the money which was meant for the commission of a terrorist activity.
The prosecution said the suspect intended to retaliate against a state witness in contravention of the Prevention of Terrorism Act of 2012.
Mr Guracha’s son, Sar, is in custody having been denied bail after he denied planting the explosives that went off inside the two buses that were ferrying passengers from the city centre to Mwiki and Githurai 45 on May 4.
