Thank you AL SHABAAB for doing this - Mandera elders now reveal the condition of the two abducted Cuban doctors as they remain grateful to the militants

Sunday May 19, 2019-Elders from Mandera County have returned to Bulahawo in the neighbouring Somalia to renegotiate ransom for kidnapped Cuban doctors.

On Wednesday, the elders returned to Kenya after a tough one month mission that saw Al-Shabaab militants demand Sh150 million ransom, a figure that Nairobi termed as 'too high'.

The elders had been given the demands when they went to a remote village in Jubbaland where Dr. Assel Herera Correa, a general practitioner, and Dr. Landy Rodriguez, a surgeon, are believed to be held. The two are said to be well taken care of by the militants.

“The doctors are well taken care of. They are under watch as they offer medical care to locals,” said a security official who talked to one of the elders.

While Kenyan government has remained mum over their predicament, Somali community elders from Kenya confirmed that the doctors were also offering medical assistance to the local community under Al-Shabaab restrictions.

“They seem to be under the care and offering medical care services to the locals,” said a security official who cited the elders.
