Kenya has become a ‘terrorist playground,’ says cardinal

Catholic World News - May 14, 2014

Kenya’s leading prelate has decried the increase of terrorism in the East African nation.

“In the past few weeks we have lost many Kenyans through terrorist attacks, road accidents, robberies, suicide and illicit brews and in some cases famine,” said Cardinal John Njue of Nairobi, according to a report by the Catholic Information Service for Africa.

“The influx of guns and other dangerous weapons in the country is alarming,” he added. “A country that has been called an oasis of peace in the region has become a terrorist playground.”

    Neither here nor in the linked article is any hint given about the identity of the agents of this wave of terrorism. Things have come to a bad pass indeed when even to name the miscreants is to risk more terror, more violence. I concede that most people can easily guess who is bombing, looting, raping, and causing general havoc in Kenya. The usual suspects.
