Kenyans Thursday reacted angrily to the news that a 100-year-old granny has been jailed at the Embu Women Prison for failing to raise a Sh100,000 fine after she was convicted of contempt of court.

Margaret Ngima was jailed at Embu prison last week for contempt of court after failing to pay a fine of 100,000 Kenyan shillings ( $1,000, GHC3,750), BBC reports.

The great-grandmother was accused of ignoring a court order in a land dispute with another family.

Her case caused outrage in Kenya, with her fine eventually paid for by Nairobi senator Mike Sonko.

The senator also sent what he described as a "rescue squad" to secure her release, one week into a three-month sentence.
