President Pierre Nkurunzizza has sensationally claimed there is Al Shabaab threat on Kenya, Uganda and Burundi. He made the statements in first public appearance after the failed coup to topple him.
While Kenya has been under high terror alert, the authorities are yet to inform the country of any immediate terror threats, prompting observers to wonder whether the government is once again hiding terror information from citizens.
Comments by President Nkurunziza, who steered from discussing the failed coup in his country, are yet to be denounced by Nairobi, despite being a serious diplomatic issue. It is uncommon for a head of state to openly discuss intelligence briefs of other nations.
