      Default Al Shabaab threat: Kenya on alert!

      Kenya: Govt. on alert over militia threats
      February 28th, 2011
      Attachment 24041
      Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere


      The government has taken precautionary security measures following threats of attacks by the Somali militia group Al-Shabaab.

      Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere says the threats by Alshabaab cannot be taken for granted considering they issued a similar warning to Uganda before bomb attacks that killed more than 70 people in July last year for which they claimed responsibility.

      Addressing journalists in Nairobi on Monday Iteere said security has been beefed up on the Kenyan borders to avert entry of any illegal groups.

      However, Iteere urged Kenyans not to panic and assured them that security personnel are on high alert. Ha called on the public to cooperate with security agents in case they encounter any suspicious individuals or groups.

      The police boss also said calm has returned to the border town of Mandera following a week-long fighting on the Somalia side between Al -Shabaab militia, troops allied to the Somali transitional Government and Ethiopian troops.

      During the fighting, one person was killed by stray bullets fired from Somalia and ten others injured.

      The Al Shabaab have threatened to launch an attack against Kenya for assisting the Somali Transitional government by allegedly allowing Ethiopian forces to stage raids from its territory.

      Meanwhile the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS) has embarked on registration of Somalia refugees in Mandera town.

      Following heavy fighting between Al-Shabab militants and forces allied to the Transitional Federal Government of Somalia, along the Kenya-Somalia border, hundreds of refugees are scattered in Mandera town and its environs.

      A lull in the fighting on Sunday enabled the KRCS personnel to start registration of refugees that would facilitate distribution of relief aid.

      A team comprising the Provincial Administration, KRCS and medical officers has identified a site for a temporary refugee camp. KRCS has also deployed to Mandera relief items for 1000 households (6,000 people.

      On 25th February 2011, gunshots hit KRCS Mandera Offices where six staff members were holed up.

      A woman was killed at Border Point One and 10 casualties treated at Mandera District Hospital.

      At least 17 people who sustained injuries following the conflict have been treated in various health facilities in the district.

      I'm afraid next Friday there will be mass demonstrations in Dar to condemn Kenya for invading Somalia.
      Don't worry my brother it goes like this. It's ok for an african to kill a fellow african even if they are of the same religion - remember Darfur?. But when a foreigner kills an african regardless of the motive that is called western imperialism. So it goes without saying that there won't be mass demonstrations in Dar over Kenyans' action.

      With over 45 fighter jets and 60 combat long range helicopters shifting base from Nanyuki and Moi Airbases to Elwak and Liboi Garrisons along the border,Kenya has formally declared war against Al Shabaab.

      Millitary sources indicate that over 12,000 Army men most of them snipers have already arrived along the border with more trucksloads and transport helicopters moving others from as far as Lanet and Gilgil barracks Nakuru to the border.

      Over 75 tanks were also sighted in Isiolo yesterday evening under heavy escort en route to Liboi while heavy war ships from Mtongwe navy Barracks have pitched tent at Kiunga and Manda.

      Internal Security minister George Saitoti said the country will invoke Article 51 of the UN Charter to fight the militia group and protect foreigners within Kenya's borders.

      "This cannot be left to continue at all, and it means we are now going to pursue the enemy, who are the Al Shabaab, to wherever they will be -- even in their country," he said.

      Wakenya hawawawezi Al Shabaab. Ao nyang'au hawana ubavu. Sana sana wanajitafutia balaa la kujitakia. Najua akina Smatta, Mkenyamzalendo, Moyo, Nomasana etc. watabisha/kasirika kwa hili, lakini habari ndo hiyo. Muda si mrefu Nairobi itasambaratika kama Mogadishu, Insha'Allah!

      Tayari US wamefanikiwa katika mkakati wao.

      Unakumbuka waliingia Somalia na kuanzisha (humanitarian intervention) ambayo baadae wakajiondoa. Sasa wamerudi kwa drone strikes. wameweka base Djibout na sychelles.

      Unakumbuka US waliripua balozi zao hapa Tz na Kenya? na kuleta "washauri" wa kijeshi na wachunguzi wa ugaidi? Sasa ni Rasmi Obama anapeleka Askari aka washauri wa kumsaka Konye.

      Kwa tamko hili la Kenya ni wazi wanafungua mlango wa kukaribisha na kusambaza vita, ugaidi. Katika siku zijazo TZ itafikiwa na hali hii ya kuingizwa katika mapambano. Al shabab tayari wanalaumiwa kuingia Uganda, Kenya bado TZ.

      US wanajua kucheza karata zao vizuri....rasilimali zetu, ndio laana yetu.

      Kuna wengine wanasema hawa ni off.shoot ya Al qaeda. Kama ni sahihi basi Al qaeda na mujahedeen groups ni creation ya CIA- US kwa malengo ya kuanzisha vita ili wasambaze bases zao kwa lengo la kutanua na kupanua empire yao.

      Itizame isssue hii kwa darubini, utaona US anavyojisogeza Afrika na kujenga military partnerships na bases.

      China alijitanua kwa kasi Afrika na sasa vita dhidi ya "ugaidi" na "humanitarian interventions" inabidi ziharakishwe na zisambazwe ili kuipiga stop China.

      Exclamation Kenya Declares War!!!

      Kenyan troops off to war












      By JOHN NGIRACHU [email protected]
      Posted Saturday, October 15 2011 at 19:54

      The Kenya military has been ordered into action to stop al Shabaab militia from further threatening the country’s security and economy.

      At a press briefing on Saturday, the country’s top security chiefs declared war on the terrorist organisation operating from Somalia and said Kenyan security forces will henceforth pursue the aggressors across the border.

      “The Kenyan Government has decided to take robust measures to protect and preserve the integrity of the country and the national economy and security,” said a joint statement read by Internal Security minister Prof George Saitoti.

      He was accompanied by Defence minister Yusuf Haji. Military sources told the Sunday Nation that troops and military hardware had been mobilised to go after the rag tag militia across the border.

      Army trucks

      The Sunday Nation also learnt that a convoy of army trucks left Nanyuki for Moyale in the morning on Saturday, with the Engineering Unit based there also said to be headed in the same direction as another unit left for Wajir.

      Additional war planes were deployed from the Laikipia Air Base to reinforce others that have been in the area for the past one week.

      There were reports on Saturday evening that navy soldiers on patrol near Lamu had “taken out” two speedboats carrying combatants who defied orders to stop. (READ:
      Kenya's security forces on the spot after attacks)

      A separate air attack on a village in Ras Kamboni not far from the Kenya-Somalia border thought to have been carried out by American forces was also reported.

      Although Kenya’s armed forces are said to be among the most professionally run in Africa, they have never gone to war in the region and this will be the first time they will go after foreign combatants who have threatened Kenya’s territorial integrity.

      The ministers said the movement of al Shabaab closer to the Kenyan border had brought with it the risk of terrorist attacks on Kenyan soil and asked citizens to be vigilant.

      Prof Saitoti gave a chronology of provocative actions by the militia, including the killing of a tourist in Lamu, and abductions of tourists and humanitarian aid workers.

      The minister said the government had taken specific measures to enhance security for its citizens and visitors. (READ:
      Kibaki warns external aggressors
      )

      The steps include increased surveillance at the Coast and border points with special emphasis on tourist locations, additional boats patrolling the Indian Ocean and the adoption of a joint plan with hotels to enhance response to any threats.

      Prof Saitoti said Kenya had a right to self-defence, adding that the Constitution and the UN Charter were clear on the defence of borders.

      Kenya haina lolote. Ni kibaraka mwengine tu wa Amerika.

      Juzi pale yule mama anayetajwa mtalii aliyetekwa hatimaye tulielezwa jeshi la Kenya limeizingira boti inayodhaniwa kuwemo hayo bibi. Sikutaka kujishughulisha kufuatilia kwani nilijuwa wala hawatoikamata kwani ni uongo tu.

      Ilikuwa ni matayarisho ya kushiriki vita dhidi ya waislamu wa Somalia inayoongozwa na mbabe mkuu aliyepiga drone ras Kamboni. Kule Tanzania nao wamekamata wasomali maeneo ya mafia.Ni kasi ya fitna ya kimarekani eneo lote la Afrika mashariki na kati.
