Kenya kills 25, 81 dissapear in anti terror operation

15 September 2015, 16:34 William Korir

Nairobi - Kenya has killed as many as 25 people in extra judicial killings, a report has stated.

The Kenya National Commision of Human Rights KNHCR says that 81 other people have disappeared in the move by the government authorities to deal with terrorism.

" The Kenya security agencies have continued to conduct abusive operations against individuals and groups suspected to be associated with terror attacks in the various parts of the country," the report read.

" KNCHR has heard multiple narratives of suspects being rounded up and detained for periods ranging from a few hours to many days in extremely overcrowded and inhumane and degrading conditions," it added.

The report also described the torturous existence that terror suspects are forced to live in.

" Suspects are subjected to water boarding, electric shocks, genital mutilation, exposure to extreme cold or heat, hanging on trees, mock executions and exposure to stinging by ants in the wild," the report added.

Commission Vice Chairperson George Morara while releasing the report also called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to condemn the alleged violation of human rights.

He also quoted US President Barack Obama who stated during his visit to Kenya in July that it was wrong to harm minority communities in the name of fighting terror.

The move, he said, was counter-productive.

Kenya is fighting the existence of the Al Shabaab terror group which has started campaigns to harm Kenya, saying that it will only stop if Kenya removes its troops from the lawless country.

Nearly 450 Kenyans have died in terror related incidences in recent years, a number the government is keen to reduce.
