Background: A Nairobi court yesterday (Tuesday) sentenced 12 men to long terms in jail for plotting the overthrow of the Kenyan Government. The 12, who called themselves "The Revolutionary Council", received sentences ranging from nine to seven years.
Outside the court, the plotters waved to friends and relatives. Police controlled a crowd of about 400 who watched as the 12 were driven off in an armoured prison van, heavily escorted by security men.
