‘COPS TAKE GROUP’S BRIBES’
Residents said some security personnel take bribes from al Shabaab to ignore their presence. This issue was also raised by Mandera Senator Billow Kerrow after the Bishaare attack. Some 138-terror related deaths in 14 attacks have been recorded in Mandera since 2012. The worst year was 2014. Ninety per cent of the victims were non-locals. Mandera North and Mandera East constituencies are the most-affected as they are on the Kenya-Somalia border.
