Ration number of Somalis in Eastleigh, Govt told

15 April 2015, 08:07 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - A pressure group has called on the government to ration the number of Somali nationals living in Nairobi's Eastleigh estate as one way of dealing with terrorist attacks in the country.

The Nakuru peace group said that the huge number of Somalis in Eastleigh has greatly contributed to the rising insecurity in the country.

The groups chairman, Isaac Mwangi said the government should act hard on Somali businessmen in Eastleigh whom he claimed are sponsoring terrorism in the country.

"Eastleigh is the hub of terrorism in the country and the government must act hard and ration the number of Somalis living in the estate and if need be send them back home because we can't keep cool while our people are being slaughtered," he observed.

The group said that the government must also close its borders with Somalia in order to counter the Al Shabaab terrorists.

"We want the government to shut its borders with Somalia and deploy the military along the borders to combat any Al Shabab sympathisers from accessing the country," said Mwangi.
