On the trail of al-Shabab’s Kenyan recruitment ‘pipeline’
Posted on September 30th, 2013

The armed siege at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi has focused attention on the al-Qaeda affiliate, al-Shabab.

Sixty-seven people were killed after al-Shabab militants stormed the centre on 21 September.

The BBC’s Panorama programme had been investigating the recruitment pipeline of young Muslims through Kenya to join the Islamist group based in Somalia.

The programme met up with Makaburi – whose real name is Abubaker Shariff Ahmed – who was placed on a UN Security Council list which banned him from travel outside Kenya.

Peter Taylor reports from Kenya.

Panorama: Terror in Nairobi, BBC One, Monday 30 September at 20:30 BST and then available in the UK on the BBC iPlayer.

    Endian parasites that perished are no better than these terrorists. They did more damage to Kenya than AS terrorists.

    AS was funded by USA and Saudi.

    Kenya is Obama’s ancestral homeland and a few remaining Christian countries in Africa! What happened to Nigeria will happen to Kenya.

    Africa will be ruled by Saudi dictators.

  2. Christie Says:

    Still most of the businesses in Kenya is run by Indian colonial parasites including its media owned by an Indian colonial parasite. This media group and its interests in other countries in Africa and UK have played a major role in favor of the Indian terrorist arm in the island nation Ceylon.
