Kimaiyo rubbishes reports of Mombasa curfew

17 November 2014, 19:00 William Korir

Nairobi - Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo has said that reports of a curfew in Mombasa are false and should be ignored.

There had been reports Monday on social media sites that there would be an enforced curfew in Mombasa from 6 PM Monday evening to quell increasing tension in the coastal city after police raids in mosques.

Kimaiyo said in a statement that the reports of a curfew were false and urged Kenyans to shun spreading false messages.

" The reports of a curfew instituted by police are false and should be ignored by peace loving members of the public," he said in a statement.

He did however insist that the security operation in the city would continue, to rid the city of bad elements masquerading as normal persons in society.

" The operation will continue until all elements that pose a threat to Kenyans and the security of the nations are apprehended," he added.

Over 250 persons were arrested Monday morning in an operation on two mosques where there are supposed radical activities taking place. Weapons were recovered in the operation.

One man was killed as security forces raided mosques in the port city of Mombasa searching for weapons and radical supporters of Somalia's Al-Qaeda affiliated Al Shabaab militants, police said.

Security forces began the operation in the early hours of Monday morning, targeting the Masjid Musa and Sakina mosques in Mombasa.

"We had information that the group has been planning an attack, and that is why the raid was conducted," Mombasa police chief Geoffrey Mayek said.

"We have arrested several of them, including six notorious ones," he added.

Police said one man was killed but gave no details as to how he died, with the operation still ongoing. Several Islamic preachers have been shot dead in Mombasa in recent years in alleged extra-judicial killings by security forces and power struggles between rival Muslim factions. Churches have also been attacked.
