Governor Joho condemns murder of Muslim cleric

11 June 2014, 08:10 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – Mombasa County Governor, Hassan Joho Tuesday condemned the murder of the Muslim cleric, Sheikh Mohammed Idris which he described as saddening and called on police to swiftly carry out investigations to bring perpetrators to book.

In a press statement sent to media houses, Joho said he does not only mourn Idris as a Sheikh but as a friend who was always there in giving religious direction to the Muslim community.

“I strongly condemn the shooting and ask the police to do a thorough investigation and swiftly bring the perpetrators to justice,” said Joho.

He added that Idris’ steadfast fight for the rights of the Muslims will be missed by the coastarians and the entire Muslim community in the country.

"Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return (Quran Surat Al Ankaboot 29:57),” said Joho, “May Allah (SWT) grant him a deserving place in Jannah.”

Idris, an anti-Jihadist Muslim preacher was killed by unknown gunmen on Tuesday morning after attending prayers in a Mosque.

In April 2014 another controversial Muslim cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Shariff Ahmed alias Makaburi was also killed by unknown gunmen. Makaburi was on the US list of people behind the funding of Al-Shabaab terror activities.
