â€œWhat are Kikuyus doing in Al Shabaab? Have they bought shares?...
Ngunyi further stated that the country has failed the youth thus leading them to seek alternative ways of making ends meet
Political analyst Mutahi Ngunyi over the weekend opined on the 14 Riverside attack that claimed 21 lives.
Through his YouTube channel â€˜The 5TH ESTATEâ€™, Ngunyi stated that it is sad that all the terrorists were Kenyans and that 40percent were Kikuyus.
He speculated that the country might be at war with itself and there are underlying issues that are making Kenyans join the militant group.
â€œWhat are Kikuyus doing in Al Shabaab? Have they bought shares? Were they conducting part of the dusit operation in Kikuyu?
â€œ40 percent of the terrorists were Kikuyus. How many more have they (Al Shabaab) recruited?â€ he asked.
He added: â€œAll the five terrorists were from Kenyaâ€¦none was from Somalia where Al Shabaab comes from.
â€œIs our country at war with itself? Have our young people turned against us?â€ he wondered.
Ngunyi further stated that the country has failed the youth thus leading them to seek alternative ways of making ends meet.
Police are still probing the attack and it emerged that the suicide bomber captured on CCTV footage was 25-year-old MahirÂ Khalid Riziki.
According to the police, Mahir sneaked back into the country from Somalia on January 13, where he had been undergoing training since 2018.
