- Kenya has continued to host thousands of Somalis in camps, where, overfed on rations, they plot how to harm their hosts.
- Many Somalis have made little effort to learn any other Kenyan language besides Kiswahili, marry into the other populations or assimilate.
Arresting 657 Somalis in Eastleigh, holding them in cages at Kasarani Stadium, and taxing them for illegal presence in Kenya should teach terrorists a lesson.
The deaths and injuries from recent terrorist tragedies must be avenged on the relations of those who relish the prospect of Kenyans’ tears. Since 2011 when the Kenya Defence Forces went into Somalia to rescue foreign tourists kidnapped by the terrorist Al-Shabaab, 84 explosions have gone off around the country, killing and maiming Christians in bars, cafes, churches, public buses and shopping malls.
Invariably, the intelligence services have traced each improvised explosive device to a Somali. Still, the government has allowed these relatives of al-Shabaab to invest in the country, constructing tall buildings, trading and practising their religion oblivious of the poor pay the police receive. The time to atone for their stinginess is now.
Kenya has continued to host thousands of Somalis in camps, where, overfed on rations, they plot how to harm their hosts. After infiltrating every state department, they have pledged their loyalty to their kin by issuing identity documents and passports, thus turning Kenya into a major transit point and recruiting ground for terrorists.
It is their offer of comfort to their ethnic relations that has created thousands of terrorist sleeper cells.
Stemming from the royal treatment extended to Somalis, they have invented great grandparents, parents and families in order to acquire Kenyan IDs and passports.
Some have even acquired primary and secondary school certificates and university degrees to give the fiction of their Kenyan nationality a veneer of believability, but they do not fool anybody about where their true loyalties lie.
Recall that since 1962, Somali have always wanted to leave Kenya and join the greater Somalia.
