Speaking when he met Muslim scholars and leaders of Islamic institutions, Uhuru questioned them why the youth engage in cases of terrorism.
He said most of them had crossed borders to join terrorist groups in Somalia, where they end up being killed. Uhuru questioned the leaders, why they do not cry for justice for those killed in such groups.
According to him, Muslim leaders had attacked the governmnet over extra-judicial killings, forgetting their role in bringing up youth.
“There are some that surrendered to us and forgave them, during amnesty. They are in various government institutions for rehabiltation and anti-radicalisation. Why are you not talking about them? We should think again, about this matter. No government will want to kill its youth or citizen, for nothing,” he said, Tuesday.
The leaders, who met the president in two groups at State House, thanked him for appointing the highest number of Cabinet Secretaries and Principal Secretaries from the community.
The first group was composed of representatives of major Muslim organisations while the second one included more than 100 of the country’s leading Islamic scholars.
