Sh30,000 dowry claim in Briton’s terrorism case
The British terror suspect Jermain John Grant reportedly paid Sh30,000 dowry and married a Kenyan woman he had met barely two weeks earlier. Bombululu resident Hassan Mohammed said he introduced Grant to the women after they met at the Kibokoni mosque and became friends. He said the woman lived at Mwandoni with her brother.

Grant claimed he was living with friends in Mombasa and was searching for a wife.
