Inside Kenya's Death Squads | Al Jazeera Investigations

  • ℹ️ Description
For the first time members of Kenya’s counter-terrorism police admit to “eliminating” suspected Muslim radicals.

Speaking exclusively to Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit, officers from four units of Kenya’s counter-terrorism apparatus admitted the police assassinate suspects on government orders.

They claim that the order to assassinate is made by the National Security Council, a body chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
The film examines how extra-judicial killings are seemingly becoming normalized, thirteen years after the so-called ‘War on Terror’ was declared.

It is interesting How this piece tries to paint Terrorist as victims of police brutality....Aboud Rogo was recruiting youths to kill fellow Kenyans....He was filmed training them....It is true we have death squad....They were first created to Eliminate the Mungiki and are now killing Extremists....But if the Judiciary has failed or if the law is weak in tackling Terrorism do we Sit and watch as these Demented Extremist continue Killing Innocent You declare Jihad be prepared to face the Infidel.

soo whats the issue?some peolpe killed for preaching by the gun and getting what they ultimatly wanted? 2. very lopsided documentary, obivious what al jezera wanted to acheive, despondecy, religious intollerance, and ultimately instill fear into the minds of kenyans. lets not be cowed, please practice some responsible journalism, this is avery reckless put togeter peice of work. i know that violence and hatred is what the media thrives on, but this needs to be done in a more cultura, historical and more factual manner.

Am not a Muslim but this is not the way to go because if we go on like this it will lead to war with somali which the US itself was unable to stop. I believe keanya is fighting a war that is not supposed to fight let us witdraw our force from somali n seal our boards but I know there are big pple brokers in government who will not like this war to end coz they r receiving blood dollars from the US.

Most of the information in this documentary cannot be verified. All this journalist has done was fuel a religious angle to the war on terror and made himself famous.
