MRC’s threat escalates as it recruits children

Mombasa Republican Council’s threat to security is getting more
unsettling especially after it emerged it is recruiting children just
like other infamous rebel movements.
The Standard gained exclusive access to identity cards
issued to the young MRC recruits, whose rallying call is Pwani Si Kenya
(Coast isn’t in Kenya), on enlistment with the outlawed group protesting
at historical injustices such as post-independence land-grabbing.
The cards bearing recruits’ photographs and a court of arms of two
crossed-swords were seized from newly inducted members found taking oath
early yesterday at Walea in Kaloleni constituency.
