Uhuru Kenyatta


KENYA has placed a-20 million shilling ($215,000) to reward anybody who provides the information that will lead to the arrest of Mohamed Mohamud, a man labelled “most wanted” and linked to an attack on a university campus on Thursday, April 2.

According to Reuters, Al Shabaab militants stormed Kenyan university killing 14 people. “Anybody who sees Mohamed Mohamud should report to the security agencies”, the Interior Ministry said on its official Twitter feed. The ministry also showed a picture of Mohamud in a poster.

Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya president, also vowed to speed up police recruitment after university attack. He said the recruitment of 10,000 new police officers would be speeded up after Somali Islamist gunmen attacked a university campus in the northeastern town of Garissa and killed at least 14 people on Thursday.

Kenyatta, in a brief address to the nation, directed Kenya’s police “to take urgent steps and ensure that the 10,000 recruits whose enrolment is pending” be speeded up.

Other than urging Kenyans to remain calm and provide information on the attack, Kenyatta did not outline any other measures about how the security services would prevent future attacks by al Shabaab militants.
