Kenyan Police Force
Uhuru Kenyatta, the President of Kenya, has announced that all places of worship are off limits as targets for radicalizing youth.This announcement comes on the heels of the recent tragedy in Nairobi, where Islamic extremists from Somali bombed a shopping mall in the capital of Kenya, killing 67 people. Apart from this incident, which occurred in September, there have been a number of raids and violent incidents involving police and youth protesters. Kenyatta has also been focusing on the improvement and enlargement of police forces within Kenya, in an attempt to combat the growing tensions in the country.
Meanwhile, Muslim Kenyans argue that the growing divide between Muslim leaders and youths can be attributed to the police and government harassment of them. Muslim leaders have insisted that this unfair treatment has driven Muslim youths to act radically and in opposition to the law.
