The members of the African Think Tanks board and the African communities wish to express our utter horror at the attack recently perpetrated at Westgate shopping Mall, in Nairobi, Kenya by al-Shabab forces under the instruction of al-Shabab leader Ahmed Abdi Godane. African Think Tank extends support and heartfelt condolences to all the victims’ and their families and the Kenyan government and people, and shares their disbelief that such a tragic outcome could befall on innocent people doing their daily life in a shopping centre. Unnecessary loss of life is always tragic, but it is particularly poignant when it involves women and children.
"This is nothing short of evil and must be utterly condemned", said ATT Chairperson Dr. Berhan Ahmed today. "Surely such remorseless violence and cruelty must fill any decent human being with horror. This was deliberate targeting of a place filled with innocent women and children.
"Like the September 11 attacks, this was an attempt to dissuade a nation from aiding and supporting re-building Somalia. Kenya will not be dissuaded from continuing to give economic, political and military aid to Somalia and the refugees living in Kenya. All the terrorists have done is to demonstrate how necessary it is to unit and fight this evil and inhumane extremist ideology.
"That such actions could be committed in the name of Islam is also a crime that fills Muslims with grief. As events in Syria, Guatemala, Rwanda, Cambodia, Serbia, and even Germany show, all peoples are capable of producing wicked, vicious bandits when civil order breaks down and warlords take over. Using the name of religion to justify atrocities only further demonstrates the depravity of their views and their actions.
"There are doubts - valid doubts - about military intervention in some countries. It is a dangerous road. But helping to suppress these local warlords is an action that must commend itself to nations. Without government and law, these evils grow.
