Mombasa Republican Council and Al-Shabaab Colluding, Coast Police Say


Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Coast Commissioner Samuel Kilele has accused al-Shabaab and the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) of collusion, giving the two groups a one-week ultimatum to surrender or face consequences, Kenya's The Star reported Saturday (March 30th).

Kilele said both groups have similar interests in causing disturbances in the region. "If they do not surrender, then we will go to the forests and the caves to flush them out," he said. "We know where they are and we know what they are planning."

He said 26 police officers have been killed between September and March. Most recently, two officers were killed in a suspected MRC raid on a police station in Malindi on Thursday, he said.

Kilele said some of the attackers may have travelled to Somalia for military training.
