Kenya alert over Shabaab threats. also Burundi Troops Vows to Crush Al Shabaab

Police Commissioner Mathew Iteere
Commissioner of Police Mr Mathew Iteere has urged shopping mall, hotel owners and Public Service Vehicles (PSV) operators to be more vigilant following the threat by Somalia based radical Islamic group al Shabaab militia to attack Kenya.
Mr Iteere, however, assured Kenyans that police working in conjunction with other security agencies in the country had put measures to provide adequate security.
“I would wish to take this opportunity to assure the public that in conjunction with other security services, we have taken measures to provide adequate security. However, we wish to advice those responsible for security in shopping malls, hotels, Public Service Vehicle stations and other socials places where the public is admitted to be more vigilant at this time,” the police boss said.
He urged members of public with information on criminals and other suspicious activities to report to the police or other authorities.
Mr Iteere said that police were taking the warning seriously because al Shabaab had claimed responsibility for the June 11, 2010 twin bombings in Kampala which claimed 76 lives.
Al Shabaab spokesman Sheikh Ali Mohamuo Raghe alias Shiekh Ali Dhere on Sunday warned of revenge attacks against Kenya for aiding the Transnational Federal Government (TFG) in Somalia.
He accused the Kenyan government of being behind ‘the trouble’ in Somalia.
“Previous warnings to Kenya were nothing compared to this one. We are going to retaliate against it (Kenya) harshly,” the al Shabaab spokesman was quoted saying in Mogadishu on Sunday.
The al Shabaab spokesman accused Kenya of assisting pro-government forces in their attacks on the group's positions.
The police boss’ appeal comes as the Kenyan military in Mandera upgraded its alertness on the border to ‘amber’ as fighting between al Shabaab and TFG forces assisted by African Union troops continued.
The Department of Defence spokesman Mr Bogita Ongeri warned that Kenya would not allow the militia nor their associates on the country’s soils because they are a threat to humanity.
“Al Shabaab is provocative, unnecessarily aggressive and disrespectful to our territorial integrity. We are taking care in case of spill over into our country. Let them fight in their country not cross over to ours.
"We have, however, deployed soldiers to take care of our borders and are restraining ourselves because we respect the territorial integrity of a neighbouring country. They are used to threatening to attack, secretly capturing people and bombing hospitals only to later blame Kenya for problems of their own making. We cannot allow them nor their associate on our soil as they are a treat to humanity,” Mr Bogita said. Nation

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.
