Police banned foreign extremist Muslim preachers from conducting sermons in mosques in the coastal city of Mombasa as war on terror intensifies.
Mombasa county cid boss Henry Ondiek said some of the preachers are accused of using pulpits to radicalise youths and sowing hatred in various Mosques in Majengo, Kisauni, and Likoni. Ondiek said detectives are looking for a Tanzania cleric suspected to be among key leaders radicalising youth.
According to intelligence Sheikh Ramadhan Juma had early slipped through a police dragnet when officers raided Masjid mosque in Majengo late last year. He warned that those found aiding them will also be arrested.
