Kenya: Islamic militants order Christians to leave the north

June 2020

The al-Qaeda-linked group, al-Shabaab, has told local Somalis and Kenyans living in northern Kenya to ‘drive out’ any non-local Christians in the area.

In a report from International Christian Concern (ICC) a video clip posted online urged Muslims living in the area to get all the local jobs and for Christians to leave the three northern counties of Garissa, Wajir, and Mandera.

According to the video, there is ‘no need for the presence of disbelievers’, the terrorist group al-Shabaab told viewers.

Attacks against Christians in the three states is nothing new; in 2015, al-Shabaab militants targeted Christians in a quarry workers’ compound, killing several and wounding others.
