A Kenyan Christian of Somali descent, Mohamud Yusuf Ahmed, fears three Muslims who threatened his life in November of last year, two of whom stabbed Ahmed in February of this year, leaving him for dead, have been released on bail. The release raises questions as to whether impunity is being granted to Ahmed’s attackers, Ahmed Ali Mohammed and Issa Shidane Quru, and their colleague Hassan Ahmed Ali, who threatened Ahmed saying, “You infidel, you are not supposed to be alive, and we must kill you.”
05/15/2014 Kenya (Morning Star News) – A Christian convert of Somali descent in Kenya said he is concerned that Muslims who stabbed him in Nairobi have been released from jail as they await trial.
Mohamud Yusuf Ahmed told Morning Star News that Ahmed Ali Mohammed and Issa Shidane Quru, also of Somali descent, stabbed him on Feb. 15, after threatening to kill him on Nov. 17, 2013, saying, “You infidel, you are not supposed to be alive, and we must kill you.”
“The two men stabbed me and left me bleeding,” Ahmed said of the attack in the predominantly Somali area of Eastleigh in Nairobi. “Good Samaritans saved my life.”
A third Somali Muslim, Hassan Ahmed Ali, had joined Mohammed and Quru in threatening Ahmed near a Deliverance Church in Eastleigh in November. The three Muslims then went into hiding after Ahmed filed a report with police about the threat, the Christian said.
