[Ex?] Kenya Navy personnel obtain court order against courts-martial

The circumstances and precise legal issues are not set forth as clearly as one would prefer in the press coverage, but seem to involve whether the accused, who claim to have resigned, were properly separated from the KDF as well as whether the authorities complied with speedy charging requirements.
