SUMMARY

“What 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 ‘The 5TH ESTATE’, 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.

“What are Kikuyus doing in Al Shabaab? Have they bought shares? Were they conducting part of the dusit operation in Kikuyu?


“40 percent of the terrorists were Kikuyus. How many more have they (Al Shabaab) recruited?” he asked.

He added: “All the five terrorists were from Kenya…none was from Somalia where Al Shabaab comes from.

“Is our country at war with itself? Have our young people turned against us?” 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 Mahir Khalid Riziki.


On Saturday, Riziki’s wife and father were arrested in Bakarani, Mombasa, by officers from the Anti-Terror Police Unit (ATPU).

According to the police, Mahir sneaked back into the country from Somalia on January 13, where he had been undergoing training since 2018.
