The Killing Of Al Shabaab Militants Involved In The Callous Mandera Bus Massacre Is Misleading

A section of bloggers made sensational claims that the KDF in liason with NIS had managed to track and decimate Al Shabaab militants involved in the Mandera Bus massacre. The Interior Cabinet Secretary, Ole Lenku, gave a vague statement that KDF had managed to track the Al Shabaab bases and killed many. His tweet read: “attackers camp has been destroyed by KDF using helicopters and jets, many killed, operations continue.” No evidence to that effect was made as the Al Shabaab continues to outwit the Kenyan security agencies.

Mandera Governor Ali Roba had early passed information to the security operatives that militants were crossing into the country from Somalia with the aim of committing terrorists acts. He said that police downplayed the matter resulting in the death of 28 innocent Kenyans. It must also be remembered that a blogger by the name Abdulaziz Mohammed has been giving accurate information on his twitter handle of the operations of Al Shabaab in the country but the NIS has never bothered to make a follow up on what he posts. He had written on his blog,, how the Al Shabaab had crossed to Kenya.
