Mombasa based activist wants police curb kidnapping


Mombasa based Gender and children’s rights activist Naila Abdalla now wants police to end the emergence of kidnapping and killings in the country.

Ms Abdalla said the chilling situation has not been recently witnessed in the country, warning that it can worsen if no prompt efforts are implemented to contain the worrying trend.

In a statement to newsrooms on Sunday, the Sisters For Justice Executive Director said the current trend is slowly turning to a femicide calling for urgent measures to end such inhumanity.

The Gender and children rights activist termed the recent incident where a 19 year old woman Najma Abdulahi Maalim disappeared and her body was later found at the Portreitz Sub county hospital in Changamwe as disturbing.

“We want an end to this, the DCI should relentlessly strive to unearth the motive behind the kidnapping and killings,” said Abdalla.

She said parents in Mombasa and Nairobi are now in total fear following the recent abduction, torture and killings of innocent young women.

“Both parents and their children are no longer safe, only the security agencies will put this to an end,”  She said.

The rights defender concerns come in the wake of a series of abduction, torture and murder of innocent women in the country.

The cases have been reported in Mombasa and Nairobi with the captors aiming at killing their captives.

Already, police in Mombasa are detaining a woman Faiza Hassan Ali who is directly linked to 19 year old woman Najma Abdulahi Maalim’s murder.

Meanwhile, police in Nairobi on Sunday morning rescued Kamukunji business woman Hafsa Mohamed Luqman who went missing on June,15.

The 23 year old woman was seen in a video being tortured by her captors.

The abductors demanded a 5 million shillings ransom.

Hafsa has been taken for urgent medical treatment as police are detaining a suspect linked to the abduction.
