The Horrific Truth of Kenya Terrorist Attack?
Winnie Kiziah (@WKiziah), a journalist with the State Broadcaster, posted a series of tweets around midday GMT on Wednesday from a security source which told a sickening story. A number of Kenyans responded strongly against her posts. Around 3pm GMT her account was closed. According to Twitter sources she did this herself. The tweets were saved and can be viewed here or here - please note they are truly disgusting and I will not reproduce their content.
I am seconding what she is saying @WKiziah. I was told that stuff yesterday evening by some barracks guys…
There has been a strong questioning by Kenyans on social media of the government’s account of what happened in the Mall, some of which has made it into MSM reports as ‘confusion’. A crowdsourcing project by Kenyans has come up with 85 questions.
What I would note is that in numerous accounts about the experience of foreign jihadis that join up for al-Shabab they often refer to these people fleeing Somalia when they experience how al-Shabab actually treat people. The behaviour described in Kiziah’s account should be seen in that light.
If there are updates or further confirmation I will first be posting on my blog: Paul Canning: The Horrific Truth of Kenya Terrorist Attack?
