On Thursday, two Christian Somali Pastors in Kenya were shot. This article reports that one was killed while other reports indicate that both were killed. Christians in Kenya are concerned for their future in a country where "The government is fearful, does not know how to handle the Islamist drive, and thus has a tendency to give in easily to demands, sometimes at the expense of the churches."
With persecution against Christians in Muslim parts of Kenya increasing, believers are concerned that the coming elections will fall to supporters of Al-Shabaab. This Muslim minority group has had great influence on the current government and has triggered “political instability in Kenya.” Elections will be on March 4.
A Kenyan Anglican Priest calls on Christians worldwide to pray for believers in Kenya, where Al-Shabbab continues its reign of terror against them. The priest says of Al-Shabbab, "They aim to rid Christians from here [along with] the security forces. As a result of this Christians who have not fled live in great fear”.
The Somali terrorist group al-Shabaab is killing Christians in Kenya in retaliation to Kenyan forces' intervention to stamp out its presence in southern Somalia.
