Gazeti la leo la New Vission linataja Tanzania kuwa ni moja ya nchi ambazo Al Shabaab imechukua ama kusajiri Wabongo ili kuiangusha serikali ya Somalia kulingana na Mwakilishi maalumu wa Umoja wa Afrika Wafula Wamunyinyi.
UGANDANS are among the foreigner militants fighting alongside Al Shabaab to overthrow the Somali government, the African Union Mission in Somalia has said.
The AU special representative for Somalia, Wafula Wamunyinyi, also listed Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, America, Tanzania, Kenya and Sudan as countries where Al Shabaab has recruited.
Speaking at the opening of a confidence building workshop for the Somali peacekeeping mission, dubbed AMISOM, yesterday, Wafula pointed out that the presence of Al Qaeda in Somalia is real and the world should be put on notice.
He observed that the managers and operational commanders of Al Shabaab belong to Qaeda.
“If we don’t put our hands together, Al Qaeda will take over Somalia considering the grip they have on the country,” Wafula said
