Sunday March 30, 2014 – National Assembly Majority Leader, Aden Duale, has taken on controversial Muslim cleric, Sheikh Sharif Abubakar alias Makaburi, saying he is a fake Sheikh.
Speaking on Friday during a meeting of Muslim leaders with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy, William Ruto, in Nairobi, Duale blasted Makaburi for justifying killing of innocent Kenyans by Al-Shabaab terrorists at the Westgate Shopping Mall and Christians in Mombasa.
Duale gave Uhuru/ Ruto’s Government a green light to arrest or kill Makaburi for defending Al-Shabaab, saying those who defend Al-Shabaab are as good as Al-Shabaab themselves and should be killed.
He also backed Ruto’s call to close down blacklisted mosques in Kenya noting that mosques are places of worship and if they will be used to train Al-Shabaab terrorists, then they should be closed down.
The Majority Leader said he was tired of protecting Muslim criminals and urged the Jubilee Government to use excessive force if necessary in dealing with them.
Duale was reacting to Makaburi’s remarks early this week where he openly defended Al-Shabaab, saying their killing of Christians in Kenya is justified as long as Uhuru Kenyatta does not pull KDF out of Somalia.
