A ruling on five people accused of planning the Garissa University attack four years ago where 148 people were killed has been postponed.

Trial magistrate Francis Andayi was to deliver the ruling on Wednesday but postponed it to January 29.

The five accused persons in the case have denied a total of 156 counts over the attack which occurred in April 2, 2015.

The charges include committing a Terrorist Act where 148 people died, conspiracy to commit a terrorist act and being members of a terrorist group.

The prosecution has asked the court to put the five in their defence saying that they have established a case adding that all the five suspects conspired to commit the attack in which many students were killed.

The five suspects are Mohamed Ali Abdikar, Hassan Aden Hassan, Sahal Diriye, Osman Abdi Dagane and Rashid Charles Mberesero.

Mberesero, a Tanzanian, faces another charge of being in Kenya illegally.
