Bishop Zakayo Epusi of Anglican Church Katakwa diocese has warned the Malaba border residents to desist blaming the Muslim’s over massive attacks that has hit Kenyans for some time now since the ‘‘Operation Linda Nchi’’ in Somalia begun but instead help the police curb it.
He urged the residents to work together with police officers in a bid to end the increased terrorists’ assault that has raised fear to Kenyan Citizens and stop pointing accusing fingers to Muslims.
He was addressing hundreds of believers at St. James Anglican Church in Malaba Sunday morning. Epusi pleaded with parents to be at the forefront in giving direction to their children.
He said that Al shaabab group is now targeting youths to join their squad and use them to strike our peaceful Nation making it a need for all youths both Christians and Muslims to be on the alert lest they fall in the trap of being recruited as Al shabaabs.
He also asked the border people to closely work hand in hand with the police officers in reporting and giving out relevant information to security officers and relevant authorities so as to help curb the Al shaabab assail.
‘’Al shaabab threat has now become a national problem, the group is everywhere trying to temper with our peacefully country, I therefore ask all of you to work with the police officers by reporting any person you suspect is a security threat in order to have them apprehended, he said.
‘‘The problem with our people is fear to cooperate with security forces and failure to report any thing unusual happening.’’ Epusi added.
The Bishop urged them to remain vigilant and be the police themselves checking who they mingle with.
Parents were also reminded to keep a keen aye on the people their children associates with adding that the innocent children are the ones mostly targeted by the criminal group.
