Police probe into suspected Al Shabaab financiers

14 April 2014, 10:17 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Police are investigating a group of people suspected to be the major financiers  and sympathizers of terrorists in Kenya.

The Inspector General of police, David Kimaiyo said the war against terror will continue despite criticism by some politicians.

In his social media handle, Kimaiyo said police are dealing with all acts of crime while noting that 82 aliens have already been deported and 62 others arrested in Nakuru.

“We are investigating some sympathizers, financial institutions and prominent financiers suspected to fund terror activities in the country,” said Kimaiyo.

The statement came as initial reports from investigation police department indicated that some bank accounts were being probed on suspicion that they had ties with the Al Shabbaab militant group.

Kimaiyo at the same time said security operations were also carried out in Kilgoris, Lolgorian, Kericho, Sotik, Ruai, Kiambu, Isinya, Tala, Nakuru, Nairobi and Mombasa among other areas.

He added that police will not relent in the crackdown until the country is secure and its citizens safe.

In regard to security screening, Kimaiyo said the exercise is involving the National Registration Bureau, the Immigration Department and Department of Refugee Affairs.

He said those with legal documents and legally in Kenya were free to go on with their businesses.

"No one has been ordered to close down his or her business,” he stated.

The IG further stated that security is the key to economic development.

"We want businesses in this country to be operating 24 hours and business owners to feel secure,” he added.
