Islamic tutor jailed for 20 years in Kenya for preaching extremism

A court in Kenya has found a teacher at an Islamic school guilty of radicalising his students by teaching them extremism and sentenced him to 20 years in prison.

Magistrate Diana Mochache said on Thursday that Samwel Wanjala Wabwile, also known as Salim Mohammed, was found guilty of radicalising the Gotani primary school pupils.

Mochache says Wabwile, who also taught at a mosque in Gotani village in Kilifi county, had been hiding behind religion to promote extremism.

Kenya is battling recruitment of the country’s youth by al-Qaida’s East African affiliate, Somalia-based al-Shabab, and lately the Islamic State.
