“Fellow Kenyans, terrorism knows no bounds. We shall neither surrender into the hands of terrorism nor play into the narrative propounded by terrorists of discrimination along ethnic and religious lines in this war. The only way to dent terrorists the means to threaten our way of life is to choke their facilitation networks, and this is why I have published the foregoing list so that they can no longer finance Al-Shabaab’s operations within our borders,” he said.

The Interior CS also ordered the freezing of the funds and properties of the nine individuals, saying they have been financing Al-Shabaab militia operations.

“As part of our comprehensive counter terrorism strategy, we continue to disrupt terrorist operations with a sole focus on bringing to book the perpetrators, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts in line with our national laws and international obligations,” said CS Matiang’i.

The listed people from Kenya who funds Al Shabaab are:

  1. Halima Adan Ali
  2. Waleed Ahmed Zein
  3. Sheikh Guyo Gorsa Boru
  4. Mohammed Abdi Ali (Abu Fidaa)
