100 year-old Margaret Ngima has been released from prison in Kenya after she was jailed for contempt of court after failing to pay a fine of 100,000 Kenyan shillings (about N216,000), BBC reports.
 
The great-grandmother's jailing at Embu prison last week, triggered a national outrage and campaign for her release, with her fine eventually paid for by Nairobi senator Mike Sonko.
 
She was accused of ignoring a court order in a land dispute with another family.
The senator also reportedly sent what he described as a "rescue squad" to secure her release.
