Abdirahim Abdullahi, one of the gunmen shot down in Garissa seems to have sparked new debate on the funding of Alshabaab militia by inside sources. With a photo emerging of him with controversial senator Mike Sonko, He is believed to have had connections within the government from senators, MPs and even governors.

Abdirahim, who people have described as a brilliant lawyer is said to have disappeared from home last year to join the militia. His father claims to have reported the matter to police who were reluctant in acting on the matter.

It is also sad and alarming that only few weeks ago, three women were arrested heading to Somalia in suspicion of joining the Alshabaab.

Seems that “kikulacho ki nguoni mwako” (the enemy is within.)
