Uganda: Deadly Terrorist Sneaks Into K'la

He is of Somali origin  : How he used bus from Kenya to Uganda
The police are looking for a terrorist, believed to be of Somali origin, who boarded a Kampala-bound bus from Nairobi, beat the border security at Busia, and sneaked into the country. According to the Inspector General of Police, Lt Gen Kale Kayihura, the suspect, whom he did not identify by name, is on Kenya's list of most wanted terrorists.The suspect's image has been plastered all over Nairobi city, with police imploring the public to report immediately if they see him."He was detected in a Kalita bus last week by one of the passengers since his photograph has been displayed in Nairobi city."This passenger took his photograph using a phone after seeing him getting out of the bus near the border point and then boarding it again after crossing the border," Kayihura said at a news conference yesterday.
Kayihura believes the bus driver and conductor connived with the suspect. Kalita Transporters Ltd is one of the largest bus companies in the country, owned by Patrick Lucky, a businessman based in Fort Portal. According to police, the suspect boarded bus registration number KBF 057N in Limuru town, 30 kilometres outside Nairobi.
The bus had just left the city at about 7am but suddenly stopped to pick this passenger, which was unusual.
"Before leaving Nairobi, the passengers were photographed, as is the routine before a bus takes off. [Thirty kilometres] out of Nairobi at Limuru village, the bus made an unscheduled stop and picked a male passenger," Kayihura said.
The passenger had a rucksack, arousing suspicion from other passengers. About three kilometres towards Busia border post, the passenger, who appeared uneasy throughout the journey, alighted. To avoid detection, it is believed, the suspect sneaked through a narrow path often used by smugglers to enter the country.
"The bus and the other passengers went through the routine immigration and customs checks at Busia boarder and then continued with their journey to Kampala," said Kayihura.But barely three kilometres after leaving the border post in Busia, the bus again stopped and the same passenger, who had alighted on the Kenyan side, was let in. When the bus approached the outskirts of Kampala, the same passenger wanted to alight, but according to an eyewitness, the conductor told him that he would be picked up by someone at a certain location in the city."We have reason to believe that this passenger, whose photograph was taken by a member of the public, is one of the wanted terrorists being looked for by security authorities in the region. We are working with the Kenyan authorities on establishing the identity and whereabouts of this individual," Kayihura said.According to security sources, the terror suspects who carried out an audacious attack in Kampala during the World Cup final on July 11, 2010 also ferried their bomb making equipment by bus from Nairobi. The manager of Kalita Transporters Ltd., Mike Asaba, said he wasn't aware that his company could have transported a terror suspect.However, he noted that as a bus company, they always adhere to stringent security measures before recruiting their workers."We ask for their passports," he said, before revealing the identities of the bus drivers who plied the Nairobi-Kampala route the day the suspect travelled.
Asaba gave the drivers' first names as Shaffiq and Ben. The conductor was indentified as Siati, a Kenyan of Somali origin, who recently asked for leave to return home for burial."We are so strict that when the bus reaches Nairobi, the manager in the bus goes with it to the washing bay and later the bus has to be checked by a metal detector upon return," Asaba said.Kayihura appealed to members of the public who may have seen the suspect, or know his whereabouts, to alert the police immediately. Police is planning to pin posters of his image all over the country. Since the Monday bomb blast in Nairobi that injured 30 people, Uganda has been placed on terror alert.Kayihura urged proprietors of hotels, night clubs, restaurants, entertainment centres, bars and show grounds to institute security measures or risk closure.

ADF's Mukulu Kayihura reiterated the ever present threat from international terrorist organisations such as al-Qaeda, which he said are working with Jamil Mukulu's Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).
"Terrorism is still high; we are a target of ADF, al-Shabab and al-Qaeda. Jamil Mukulu uses Ugandan passports and commits terrorism [acts] in the United Kingdom and Nairobi, where he has homes," Kayihura said.
The IGP threatened to go on hunger strike if Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) did not step up community policing measures.

Honorable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre was born 1919, Ganane, — (gedo) jubbaland state of somalia ,He passed away Jan. 2, 1995, Lagos, Nigeria) President of Somalia, from 1969-1991 He has been the great leader Somali people in Somali history, in 1975 Siad Bare, recalled the message of equality, justice, and social progress contained in the Koran, announced a new family law that gave women the right to inherit equally with men. The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
