Moments after the trio’s dramatic return to jail on Thursday, Interior Minister Fred Matiang’i emphatically declined to be included in the discussion following questions from a journalist.
“No! No! No! We’re not going there. Let’s not speculate on this. We will work on it as meticulously as my colleague said, ”said Dr. Matiang’i.
He spoke in Kamiti Prison after the convicts – Musharraf Abdalla Akhulunga aka Zarkarawi, Mohammed Ali Abikar and Joseph Juma Odhiambo aka Yusuf – were flown to prison shortly after their arrest.
Police inspector Hilary Mutyambai, who accompanied the CS to Kamiti, attributed the arrest of the trio to Kenyans who volunteered to provide information.
“I would like to take this opportunity and the Kenyans for thank the police for the information they shared that led to this success, “said Mutyambai.
He said the terrorists were found deep in the bush along the border of the Mwingi-Tana River.
“Our assessment is that they were moving towards Garissa and maybe … finally crossing to Somalia,” said the chief of police.
Many Kenyans are already talking on social media about who should take the bounty home with them.
