Coast leaders threaten legal action over Masjid Musa raid

10 February 2014, 17:51 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Leaders from the Coast say they have enough evidence to show that the government acted unlawfully in raiding the Masjid Musa Mosque in Mombasa.

They further allege that eight, not two people died during the raid and many more are still missing.

The leaders, speaking in Naivasha during the two day Orange Democratic Movement ODM retreat accused the government of using unnecessary force to attack innocent youth in the mosque.

The government had raided the mosque, claiming that the facilty is being used by radicalists including the al- Shabaab militia to turn local youth into terrorism.

Mvita MP Sharif Nassir said that they are in the process of proving that the raid by the government was a cover up to commit injustices to innocent people.

" We have evidence that the government used unnecessary force and used ulterior motives as a basis to attack the mosque, he said.

" They have even lied about the number of persons who dies because I can promise you that we buried eight people and some more are missing.

" We will get to the bottom of this matter even if it means taking the government to court, he added.

The government has argued that the Masjid Musa is being used by radicalists to spread islamism and terror in the country and has vowed to close down mosques if need be.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has also said that they will not allow religious activities cause harm to innocent Kenyans and said they will take action on any person or groups seen to be destabilizing the country.
