Muslim cleric Sheikh Mohammed Mursi and businessman Zadock
Agutu are the latest arrested in an ongoing probe into the university massacre.

being asked to plead as police asked the court to allow keeping them in custody
for 30 days and five days respectively, pending an investigation.

The authorities say they are investigating the two suspects'
bank accounts and mobile phone records.
Prosecutor Duncan Ondimu said the two were allegedly in
contact with the main suspect behind the massacre, Mohammed Kuno, an Al-
Shabaab senior official.
Kuno, a Kenyan-Somali, was a headmaster at a Islamic school
in Garissa. He is blamed for several attacks in Kenya.
Kenyan police have nabbed several suspects in connection
with Garissa attack.
