Terrorists need 30 days to surrender, says Supkem

15 April 2015, 19:00 William Korir

Nairobi - The government has been urged to extend the 10 day amnesty for terrorists and radicalized youth to surrender to 30 days.

The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims Supkem Wednesday called on the state to extend the period since the 10 days given are simply not enough.

Supkem Secretary General Alhaj Adan Wachu asked the government to raise the amnesty period from ten days to thirty days adding that he hopes the amnesty will be handled without victimization and excessive force.

He also asked youth to come forward and volunteer any information to the authorities regarding terror activities in the country.

" We thank the government of Kenya for granting amnesty to Kenyan youths who joined Al-Shabaab and any other proscribed groups.

" However, ten days are not enough and we request the government to extend to thirty days," said Wachu.

On Tuesday, Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery offered an amnesty for youths who have either joined or planning to join the Al-Shabaab terror group to register with the government within ten days.

He said that those who do so will be granted full government help and will not be treated as terrorists.

He said that those who do agree to the plea should report to County Commissioners in Nairobi, Mombasa and Garissa.

It is understood that the government will after the amnesty period go on a headhunt for the terrorists it knows and has promised tough action against them.

The government has made the plea in the wake of the realization that some of the persons who initiated and were at the forefront of the Garissa attacks are Kenyans and have lived in the country for long.

The Garissa terror attacks saw 148 people killed and the government has moved to quickly try stem the tide of what it terms a local terror network.
