A list of 86 accounts frozen on grounds of funding terror

Posted: April 8, 2015 in Politics/Current issues


Following what has been termed as Kenya’s second most deadliest attack after the al Qaeda attack that killed more than 200 people at the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi in 1998, Kenya’s police chief has today issued a list of 85 people and companies, including at least 13 key money transfer companies, of suspected links to Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab.

Top of the list issued in the official government gazette notice was alleged Al-Shabaab commander Mohamed Mohamud, said to be the mastermind behind the university massacre of almost 150 people last week.

The list will be gazetted before the freezing of the red-flagged accounts begins, the Finance ministry said in a press conference on Wednesday.

The government has also suspended informal cash transfer systems popular with the Somali community.

The traders were asked to instead use commercial banks as the state clamps down on possible revenue sources and systems that facilitate terror activities in the country.

In the Garissa Terror Attack four al Shabaab militia raided Garissa University College and killed 148 people including 142 students, three police officers and three soldiers in a 15-hour siege.

The move also comes days after President Uhuru Kenyatta promised that the Government under his stewardship would respond in the severest ways possible to the Garissa attack, and any other terror attack threat. The president also pointed out that the Al-Shabaab financiers and sympathisers were among us.

“It is a fact that our task of countering terrorism work has been made all the more difficult by the fact that the planners and financiers of this brutality are deeply embedded in our communities and were seen as ordinary, harmless people, “ he said.

The president also vowed not to allow them to continue their lives as normal. “The full force of the law will be brought to bear with even greater intensity than has been the case in previous years,” he concluded. The attack also saw North Eastern leaders vow to name terrorists, financiers and sympathisers in a week to prevent other attacks.

The gazette notice was issued under Kenya’s prevention of terrorism act and signed by Kenya’s police Chief Joseph Boinnet.
