MRC threaten to sue Kimaiyo for linking them with Al Shabaab

30 September 2014, 11:04 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) have threatened to sue the Inspector General of Police, David Kimaiyo for linking the group with the Al Shabaab.

In a letter addressed to the IG, the MRC demanded an apology from Kimayo within 30 days failure to which they threatened to seek legal redress.

Speaking to the press, MRC spokesperson Richard Lewa said the statement by Kimaiyo in the dailies was careless, reckless and dangerous because it was made without any evidence to back it.

“The police have not presented any evidence of any MRC member who has interacted in any way with the Al Shabaab officials to back the allegations,” said Lewa.

Lewa said they are living in constant fear of arrest by the police who associate them with the Al Shabaab yet they have no evidence whatsoever linking them with the terror group.

He said Kimaiyo must apologise or provide evidence that links them with the Al Shabaab.

The MRC Assistant Secretary General, Mwadadu Wamamtewe denied Kimaiyo's allegation saying that the MRC agenda was different from that of the Al Shabaab.

“Our main objective is to secede from Kenya because the 1963 Agreement expired, and also because of the continued historical injustices,” Wamamtewe said.

In a letter date September 18 and addressed to Kimaiyo through the law firm of Aboubakar Mwanakitina and Company, the MRC said Kimaiyo's statement was unprofessional and illegal as it is sub judice.

The MRC further demanded an apology from Kimaiyo through the same media house that published the statement and withdraw the said statement within 30 days.
