Kenyan government has once again extended the amnesty to youths who had joined the Somalia militant group to surrender themselves to the government.
Confirming the amnesty extension on Friday 28th August 2015, the Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissery said that the extension will allow more youths to be rehabilitated absorbed back into the society.
The Interior CS cautioned police officers from mishandling those who wish to denounce the Al-Qaeda linked terror group.
Nkaissery retaliated the allegations of forceful disappearance of some youths as allegedly reported by a section of Muslim leaders and human rights defenders.
“We want to get to the bottom of the allegation…the security organs are there to provide security to the citizens,” Nkaissery said.
The National Police Service has strongly dismissed claims that police were behind forceful disappearance of terror suspects as some rights defenders and political leaders have made allegations of disappearances in Northern Kenya, the coastal region and Nairobi.
According to Kenya Police Spokesman Charles Owino, it is the duty of parents or guardians to report any case of their missing family members.
He said they have already registered quite a number of cases where youths who have fled to the war torn Somalia to join the Al-Qaeda linked Al Shabaab militant group.
Also intelligence reports reveal that some youths in Somalia have been hoodwinking their relatives that they had been kidnapped by the police to create impression that government is responsible in disappearing of some section of Kenyan citizenry.
