Nairobi – Kenya is likely to continue facing a growing
threat from radicals, after Al Qaeda announced the elevation of one-time
Nairobi-based militant Amiir Ahmad Imam Ali to lead terror operations
in the country.
In a statement posted on the website of the Muslim Youth Centre, the
Al Qaeda and Al Shabaab are vowing even more vicious attacks in the
country under Ali’s leadership. The group now refers to Ali as its
“supreme Amiir of Kenya.”
“There can be no doubt that Amiir Ahmad Iman Ali’s elevation to
become the supreme Amiir of Kenya for Al Shabaab is recognition from our
Somali brothers who have fought tirelessly against the kuffar on the
importance of the Kenyan mujahideen in Somalia,” the statement said.
