Rights organization up in arms over account freeze

08 April 2015, 16:58 William Korir

Nairobi - Muslim for Human Rights, one of the organizations whose accounts have been frozen for supporting terrorism has complained of discrimination by the government.

MUHURI is one of 86 organizations and individuals whose accounts were frozen by the Central Bank of Kenya for allegedly supporting terrorism in the country.

The development came in the wake of the Garissa University College attack which saw 148 people killed and man others injured.

Hassan Abdille, who is the MUHURI executive director said that the organization had been unfairly handled, seeing as they dealt solely with matters of human rights.

" This is very unfair. I do not understand why we have been mentioned in this list and why our accounts have been frozen," he told News24.

" The government knows what we do and the public does too. And anyway, majority of our board is not even Muslim."

" We have Father Gabriel Dolan and Maina Kiai as board members. I think this is just a move by the government to discriminate us in a blanket manner," he added.

The government has stated that the organizations are being probed for aiding terror activities in the country.

148 people were killed, with 79 injured in the Garissa attack, in n attack orchestrated by Kenyans.
