Mogadishu (15/02/2013) In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful:
Following the expiry of the deadline set by Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen for the Kenyan PoWs, the Mujahideen have decided to execute Private Jonathan KipkosgeiKangogo, a soldier serving in the Kenyan Defence Forces.
Despite the Mujahideen opening the doors of negotiations and giving them ample time, the Kenyan government has been wilfully negligent and has failed to take adequate steps to secure the release of its citizens. And with this, it has become manifestly evident that the government does not value the lives of Kenyan citizens, despite claiming to have invaded Somalia because of two foreign
tourists. The lives of the Kenyan citizens now also awaiting execution are cheap compared to the lives of
the foreign tourists.
But while the Mujahideen have executed theserving KDF soldier, there is still a chance of securing the release of the remaining 5 prisoners. As a response to the growing pleas of the prisoners’ families who have contacted us, HSM is adding a grace period of 72 hours for their government to secure the release of the remaining prisoners. In 72 hours, the prisoners will either lose their lives
because of their government’s betrayal or celebrate their government’s assistance and rejoice in their freedom. It is a matter of life and death and if it fails to secure the release of their PoWs, the Kenyan government must bear full responsibility for their deaths.
