Mwangi cautions locals aiding Al-Shabaab

Garissa County Commissioner Meru Mwangi has cautioned locals who are aiding Al-Shabaab operatives and other criminals that they will eventually catch up with them.
Speaking in Maslanai Saturday when he toured Ijara Technical Institute, Mwangi said that the government was aware that some individuals were aiding Al-Shabaab operatives to carry out attacks.
The militants have been active in Ijara constituency in the recent months with the most affected areas being parts of Holugho and Ijara that borders the Boni forest.
Two months ago, security officers on patrol stumbled upon 30 jericans of assorted food items buried in the ground believed to have been bought by locals for the Al-Shabaab operatives hiding in the Boni forest.
“As elders we are ready to support the government in its effort in fighting terrorism it is causing us more harm than good. We suffer most when they carry out attacks,” said Bashir Dagane a former civic leader.
