85 Al Shabaab youth surrender to government

29 May 2015, 13:38 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - 85 youths have surrendered to the government having had links with terror group Al Shabaab.

The youths have agreed to a call by the government to surrender or face the consequences over their links to terrorism and radicalization.

The call was made by Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery in the aftermath of the Garissa University terror attack which left 148 people killed.

Interior ministry spokesperson Mwenda Njoka said Friday that although amnesty for the radicalised youth had expired, the ministry was still pardoning the youth who voluntarily surrendered to the authorities.

" To have 85 youth who were capable of extremism surrender is an achievement not only for the ministry but for the whole country" Njoka told a press conference in Nairobi.

He also said that the youth are undergoing training and psychological therapy to help them back to the right path at an undisclosed location.

" They are being well taken care of and we urge others who are in similar situations to please come forward and seek help from the government," he added.

He also stated that there was intelligence that there are many more youths that are out there and have been radicalized and the government would do its best to ensure they are helped.
