A murderer who killed up to 400 people in his homeland has been granted asylum in Britain.
John Thuo, 27, who butchered many of his victims in machete attacks in his native Kenya, has spent a decade living here in rent-free accommodation provided by the National Asylum Support Service.
Thuo, who was a member of the outlawed Mungiki sect in Kenya, admitted at an immigration tribunal that he killed ‘about 100 to 400 people’.
He also took part in female genital mutilation.
He was granted leave to remain in the UK for three years after an appeal, under the Human Rights Act, to the Immigration and Asylum Chamber.
The judge also took into consideration Thuo’s mental health, and threats that he would kill himself if he was deported.
After his three years are up, he will have to apply for an extension or be removed.Thuo told the hearing in London he had joined the Mungiki in Nairobi when he was just ten, but rose through the ranks to become a senior member running a security racket.
