UHURU/ RUTO’s Government killed Sheikh ROGO’s ally in revenge of Westgate AL SHABAAB attack - MAKABURIPolitics 07:26
Friday October 4, 2013 - The killing of Sheikh Ibrahim Ismail on Thursday evening has sparked tension in Mombasa with many residents claiming that he was killed by the Government in revenge of Westgate mall attacks where over 75 civilians died and hundreds injured.
According radical Muslim Sheikh Abubakar Shariff alias Makaburi who was among the first people to reach the scene of crime, declared Thursday’s events as "an assassination" claiming Government agents slew the four Muslims "in retaliation” for the terrorist carnage at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi last month.
Makaburi who is a close ally of slain Islamist Sheikh Aboud Rogo claimed Sheikh Ibrahim was the target of Thursday’s shooting because of his past links to the former Rogo who was killed on August 27 last year.
Sheikh Ibrahim was assassinated on Thursday evening on his way home from the mosque. He was killed together with his four friends.
Unconfirmed reports indicate the four were buried in the early hours of Friday at the same cemetery where slain radical Islamist Sheikh Aboud Rogo Mohamed was buried on August 27 last year.
Security has been heightened in parts of Mombasa to avoid clashes as witnessed last year after Rogo’s killing.
