i have something to share. and i hear it. and i work at. it this is the news africa coming up on the program the story of a young kenyan who was recruited by al-shabaab skate and is now helping to make his country safe. the dream lives on. has been gripped by football fever as its national team prepares for the quarterfinals feature of the african cup of nations found c.b.r. team's success has made life better.
i'm eddie michael jr your welcome to the show we start off in kenya a country struggling to deal with the effects of terrorism despite government efforts to islamist militant group al-shabaab continues to recruit and radicalize young people a 2 day conference is taking place in nairobi that by the un which aims to tackle extremist violence speaking at events the kenyan president who kenyatta called terrorist groups can see that groups and can affect a whole region he fought in the conference un chief on don't you get to visit that in nairobi that's helping young people while boyd radicalization by learning new skills and finding employment online. the u.s. is facing enormous challenges that employment is as i said in the beginning probably the biggest societies but the us as a much bigger capacity than the older generations to understand the digital world
and to use the little tools from social media to. visit the world which means that you are much better prepared to face the challenges of more than. for those young kenyans who joined al shabaab returning home is almost impossible but some able to escape like. he was with in the kenyan city of mumbai. that paradise it's now struggling to draw in this. new group like 102 years of fighting with the terror group is now back home and helping to make the city safer. mohammad moved for nearly 2 years for the terrorist group the former christian converted to islam and went to somalia as a foreign fighter. now he speaks out for the 1st time about his radicalization and how he got away from. for security reasons we need to cover his real identity.
from me to be childish like you see you have kids they don't go to school eat like one meal that day and. it's just been used unemployment dollars. each. and all still leave. because they don't have jobs to. grateful for. a terrorist recruiter promised mohammed $500.00 monthly to fight in somalia he accepted like many others he saw his recruitment as a job the only way to flee from poverty mohamed was then. trained in mombasa and sent to somalia you know and used to shoot 10000000 thomson to the border you stepped issue do you not that a big. event shoot up our room is one maybe number goes up
pregnant moment they almost did i could see a baby crying mommy mommy mommy mommy mommy mommy. and myself was destroyed. mohammad managed to escape but he was wounded back in kenya he was given amnesty. but others still undergo the same recruitment because up to date based security expert. there are people who are still being groomed. their group that are being. radicalized dead a lot of videos flying around messages flying out targeting. people that is physically the point you it's. just 10 minutes away from the mombasa city center lies key sony mohammad who was radicalized here the sony is known to be
mumbai terror but there are people here who want to change that imad study mahmud is fighting radical priests trying to convince the young and angry at there is a peaceful islam to it as a result. from this or what we just told them that they've been getting along situation of the kora of syria the only thought that as leaders just watch as our young people suffer most of us we decided to give them the rights their protection . had in mind in a minute we have to study mahmoud tries to solve the problem of radicalization inside the community but his efforts often nullified by the police the constant raids nurtured terrorism rather than eradicating it says up to date. the government has just given the. you know t.v. and then sold them and then the national park the beaten by the by the. boards now for super disappearance is what is now causing a lot of people unlike a lot of lutes in mombasa to be more agree 52 are joining and being practical
eyes down being on the government side and thinking about their country but mombasa has indeed become a safer place be that because of or despite the police intervention mohammed is now supporting the authorities that was the main condition for his amnesty he now wants others about the risks there is nothing like all you indicate on it find a good share only teach you on trusts. stay away from. people you might feel. a muslim. now they have modern you but you don't know where their income comes from but as long as poverty prevails there will be young africans who follow the call of money law enforcement alone will never make places like mombasa northern nigeria or other parts of africa more peaceful.

a through joy because of tradition being part of a group or in a competition. dance is about roots as well as about opening up when we say we talk about roots it means really delving inside traditional dance which is pure to us and opening up to the world to other dance styles. i want to show that we can make a change. thank you but through my dancing i can carry messages just like any
