Al Shabaab Receives Health facilities in Kneyan Hospitals

Health facilities in Lamu, Garissa and Tana River have been put on the spot for treating and giving medicine to Al-Shabaab militants who have been terrorising locals, killing and maiming them, and destroying property.
Addressing journalists in Lamu on Monday, Linda Boni Operation Director Joseph Kanyiri said investigations were ongoing on health facilities in Lamu, Witu, Garsen, Ijara, Sanghailu, Masalani and Galmaghala.
Mr Kanyiri cited an incident on November 26 last year where four cartons full of medicine, weighing more than 20 kilogrammes, were found floating on the shores of the Indian Ocean in Shella.
The drugs, he said, were being ferried secretly to Al-Shabaab before the suspects were discovered and they fled.
Mr Kanyiri questioned why the Shabaab were no longer raiding dispensaries, compared to before when they would loot health facilities and even vandalise them.
