Nyeri - Turkana Central MP, John Nakara has asked Muslim preachers to avoid concealing information regarding criminals.
Nakara claimed that terrorists have been hiding in mosques purporting to be believers and followers of the Islam religion.
“There are terrorists living in mosques in the guise of believers. It is against the Islam holy book for any individual to commit murder,” he said.
He asked the preachers to furnish the state with names of Al Shabaab terrorists who are purporting to be Muslims.

“The preachers should know that these terrorists will kill them too. We have seen preachers being killed for standing against youth radicalization,” added the MP.
Nakara was speaking in Tetu, Nyeri County during the funeral service of Charles Wanyiri who was among the 148 people killed at Garrissa University College.
He further said that there were individuals financing terrorism in the country to water down the government's efforts to eradicate terrorists.
