Watch out for Al Shabaab Ramadhan threat, Boinett tells Kenyans

14 June 2015, 10:58 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Al Shabaab terror group is looking to attack Kenya during the holy month of Ramadhan, Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett has said.

The admission follows a threat made by a senior Shabaab official Friday, who said that his forces were eying specific installations during the period.

Ramadhan begins Wednesday June 17, 2015.

" Some of their wicked plans include targeting key Government installations, security personnel, journalists who report negatively about them and other Kenyans in order to sow discord amongst the citizens," he stated.

Boinett called on the public to avail any security information to police in a bid to ensure the country remains safe.

" Some of the evil designs the Al- Shabaab is doing include; sowing discord among peace loving Kenyans especially in the North Eastern region in furtherance of its evil agenda of alienating the region and seeking to interrupt government development programs in the region by giving false promises to the residents that by driving out non-Muslims, the region will prosper," he complained.

He said that some arrests have already been made in accordance with the Shabaab threat.

" We have made some arrests already and will continue to be on alert but we also need the public to throw their weight," he added.

The Shabaab in their Friday statement however said that they would target the north Eastern region of the country where they have thus far caused havoc.

"We are planning to give Kenyan non-believers a true taste of Jihad [the holy war] in the next few days and weeks," a senior al-Shabaab commander told DPA on condition of anonymity.

" Attacks are mainly planned in Kenya's north-eastern province that borders Somalia," he said. The group claims it already infiltrated the region.

"We will keep targeting and destroying Kenya's education sector and business sector," the al-Shabaab commander said.

The Shabaab have attacked the north eastern region to good effect in recent times, with the killing of 148 people at the Garissa University College their most deadly attack.
