Kimaiyo says Mombasa operation will continue despite protests

21 November 2014, 13:22 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police have warned Mombasa Muslims to stay calm amidst planned protests over the closure of four mosques in the city.

There are planned protests Friday lunchtime after prayers over the closure of mosques police believe are behind a spate of radical acts in the city.

The four closed mosques, Masjid Swafaa, Masjid Shuhadaa, Sakina and Minah mosques where firearms and explosive materials were seized have been closed by police.

Police have insisted that their actions to close the mosques are okay and that until they feel the elements that are driving radical behaviour are out of the way, they will re-open the mosques.

" The mosques will remain closed and we encourage residents to use others in the meantime," Kimaiyo said Friday.

He added that the youth who plan to demonstrate should exercise restraint at this time.

" I ask them to stay calm as this operation is vital for the safety of Kenyans and the country, he added.

The mosque raids have seen over 400 people arrested over their links to radical activities at the coast.

Retaliatory attacks over the raids have so far seen four people dead, attacks condemned by Kimaiyo.

" It is unacceptable and sad that lives have been lost that way but we have stepped up security and intelligence in the city to stop further attacks.
