Nairobi - A Tanzanian man and four others of Kenyan origin have been charged with the murder of 148 people in the Garissa University terror attack.
The men were arraigned before the Nairobi Magistrates Court in Milimani with 162 counts of murder for helping set up the attack at the University.
Rashid Charles, a Tanzanian national, Mohamed Ali Abdikar, Hassan Aden Hassan, Sahal Diriye and Osman Abdi, denied 162 counts of terrorism.
They will stay in custody until June 11 when their plea for bail will be heard.
Their case will be formally heard on August 24-25, 2015.
The five men have been accused of being in cahoots with the terrorists, who executed the attack as well as the main Al Shabaab terror group in Somalia, led by their leader Mohammed Kuno.
Kuno has a KES 20 million bounty on his head but is yet to be found by Kenyan police.
