Kimaiyo issues stern warning against youth radicalisation

25 February 2014, 18:35 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo has issued a stern warning against the radicalization of the youth in the country.

"As a country let us expose the youth who are advancing a criminal agenda under the cover of religion or sectarian causes," he said.

Kimaiyo said youth radicalization had several effects on the society including the cultivating of a religious and tribal intolerance amongst the people.

“I urge citizens to disassociate themselves with anyone who wants to create disharmony in the country especially in the coastal region,” said Kimaiyo.

He said the public had a constitutional and civic duty to partake in policing the country by disclosing any acts of crime and criminal elements in the society saying they should not hesitate to provide such information to the police.

“I urge citizens who have any information to bring it forward to us and such information will always be treated with utmost confidentiality,” he said.

Earlier this month, police carried out a raid on Masjid Musa in Mombasa after getting reports that the youth were being radicalized in the mosque.

As a result, several people died while others were arrested in the attack that was condemned by leaders from the region who said it was unjustifiable.

The leaders were also concerned over reports that the government was planning to close some mosques in Mombasa as a way of dealing with the issue, saying the issue could only be solved through dialogue.
