Mombasa - Drama ensued at the Mombasa law courts after the son to the slain Muslim cleric Sheikh Aboud Rogo, Dhulkfli Rogo broke an expensive camera belonging to a journalist who was photographing his mother.
Dhulkfli got tense and could not control himself when his mother was brought to the courtroom to face terrorism charges against her, and when journalists focused on Hanniah Said Saggar Rogo, his mother, for clear shots, the young man snatched the camera from the journalist and broke it into two pieces.
Joseph Okanga, a cameraman working with the Reuters, lost the camera worth KES 200,000 and demanded an immediate replacement by the family of Dhulkfli.
Hanniah’s Lawyer Yusuf Abubakar told the court that Rogo’s family will replace the camera.

Hanniah asked members of her family to take the boy out of the court immediately before he causes more drama and damages since he could not control himself.
The case against Hanniah proceeded after the courtroom calmed down, and the state counsel led by Eugene Wangilla appealed to the resident magistrate hearing the case Emmanuel Mutunga, to give police 14 days to accomplish their investigations.
The case will be back in court on Friday the 16th of September where resident magistrate Emmanuel Mutunga will rule on whether to grant the 14 days for investigations or not.
Hanniah was arrested on Wednesday at her home in Kikambala, Kilifi County after she was linked to the slain three women who attacked Mombasa Central Police station last Sunday and were killed by police. A Police officer was also stabbed during the incident.
