The Al Shabaab tereror group has claimed responsibility over the Mpeketoni attacks which left over 50 people dead. The Somali terror cell revealed they burnedÂ Â several hotels, a police station, a bank, vehicles in addition to the killings.
The terrorist group say the attack is as a result of Muslim clerics killed in the recent past at the coast.
“Al shabaab fully secured the town for 10 hours leaving a trail of destruction and scores dead,” reads the statement adding, “do not ever dream dream of living peacefully in your lands while your forces kill the innocent in our lands”.
The government through the security cabinet secretary had earlier blamed the opposition. Al Shabaabab’s statement leaves CS Ole Lenku with a rotten egg in the face having earlier blamed the attacks on Opposition.
Kenyans online have accused Ole Lenku for Plagiarizing Jubilee media strategist Moses Kuria’s tweets into his press statement. Doubts are emerging if indeed the minister ever gets proper intelligence briefs, he always makes pedestrian remarks much to the embarrassment of the president.
