Al Shabab members should be not be forgiven

At least 20 Kenyan Members of parliament from the ruling Jubilee party today rejected the amnesty the government offered to the Al Shabab recruits, saying the members should be punished.

They said the recruits should be dealt with the same way they terrorized innocent Kenyans. The legislators also challenged MP’s from the Somali-dominated North Eastern region to publicize the list they said they would present to the president at the end of the month.

They tasked the Leader of Majority in the National Assembly to spearhead the initiative or “step aside”. “Kenyans are waiting for theses leaders to bring the perpetrators of Garissa attack to book,” the Mps said at the Parliament building in Nairobi.

The Kenyan government Tuesday gave the Kenyan youths who joined the Somali armed group Al Shabab ten-day window to surrender to government security agencies. The Kenyan interior security minister Joseph Nkaissery urged the youth to present themselves at either of the Mombassa, Garissa or Nairobi police stations.
