It is death to those who oppose Al-Shabaab


The terrorist blood-lust group al-Shabaab has recently executed a man it accused of sodomy in Buq Goosaar, 50 KMs west of Beledweyne town. The murderous group announced in loudspeakers a day before the execution and forced the -public to watch the execution to instill fear in their hearts.

The group accuses anyone who opposes and criticises the genocide it is committing against the Somali people of heinous crimes to justify their punishment. The group uses far-fetched accusations to punish its dissidents. The cases are in most instances hearsays and the words of the al-Shabaab prosecutor against the words of the accused. The victims are often elders who took part in parliamentary elections in their respective regions.

In an instance that occurred in the year 2008, a 13 year old girl who accused three al-Shabaab members of rape was executed by stoning in public by the group in the port city of Kismayo. Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow was stoned to death on October 27 2008 in a public stadium attended by about 1,000 people forced to watch the execution, several of whom attempted to intervene but were shot by the militants.

All Aisha did was report to the group how three of its members raped her and left her for dead but because the accused were its own, Aisha had to be executed and silenced her forever. The murderous group also recently executed an elderly man it accused of practicing witchcraft in Sakow town, Middle Jubba.

Al-Shabaab targets transit goods trucks

Al-Shabaab has in the last one week burnt down a total of 12 trucks that were carrying goods destined for Afgoye town, Lower Shabelle. The trucks that were carrying charcoal were stopped at a checkpoint manned by al-Shabaab militia when they were shortly torched and burnt down crippling innocent businessmen.

This is an intimidation and the display of the consequences businessmen face for not paying taxes to al-Shabaab. The group has imposed an illegal form of taxation and it uses religion as an excuse.

The checkpoints are meant to mint money to nourish al-Shabaab’s leadership and it often goes to the pockets of individuals.

Al-Shaabab opts for clan politics to tackle armed rivals

Terror group al-Shabaab has started using clannism and tribalism to counter Maawisley, a rival armed group that consists of civilians who took up arms to resist al-Shabaab’s rule.

Following defeats in the battlefield, the group has forced some civilians to demonstrate and denounce maawisley falsely accusing them of belonging to one clan.

The civilians who took part in the demonstration were forced at gun point to denounce maawisley group and call them names.

This is a desperate attempt by the murderous group al-Shabaab to divide people along tribal lines in order to rule them with utmost control. The group is facing less political support and armed groups like maawisley are a threat to its existence.

It has been weakened both financially and militarily and it has resorted to intimidation and division to continue its cruelty against the Somali population.
