Kenyan Government Cracks Whip Against Al-Shabaab Financiers By Closing Down 13 Hawalas

Following the recent Al-Shabaab attack on campus that left over 147 students’ dead, the Kenyan government has decided to leave no stone unturned. With new revelation that some financial institutions are being run by Al-Shabaab sympathizers and financiers, the Kenyan government decided to freeze the accounts of 13 Hawalas and ordered members of the Muslim community to start using legalized financial institutions such as banks and other micro finance institutions. This was in a bid to stop those thought to be bankrolling Al-Shabaab activities in the country from doing so.

  • In my view Kenyan government must examine carefully about reaction towards the college attacks.

    And also closing legal trading institutions who pays tax and rents to both the Kenyan Government as well the Kenyan public will not heal the angry. Hence, Kenyans have all the rights to carry out thorough study and procedures to contest against all types of terrorism, but without damaging their trade partnership with the lots of Somalis business people who has heavily invested in their country in all sectors, including money exchanges

  • The government should respond to alshabaabs but not reactin like hw our president did….this is not a politics thing but purely an insecurity matter…We are a kind where The Nation is Killing its own people..reforms should be done right from changing the Education system in favour of many jobless youths..

  • the kenyan troops should be deported back if that is what alshabaab needs to stop killing our people…our security should not be a political issue…those involved in the massacre should be killed on the spot…the financers should be arrested and imprisoned without trial!
