9:11 am
injured, one of them fatally. most of the victims were lifted tonight will be living only 2 young boys. just out of secondary school. jackson motto was forced into the corner of the dinos tried to escape. he was struck repeatedly, one bullet, shuttering the bone in his right leg. i mean shows agile customer lives. so black with who had been shot dead, someone dead past in your heart, when do you feel awhile not to talk with them? my tell you. i had to do to viet in june 1 because i don't know the reason why you can disconnect, shoot and kill innocent people who are not do that to some last good have come down. yes. to does history people up to that? 80 just to s, as in us incidence. and then no,
9:12 am
nothing could down check us cafe was popular with workers from other parts of kenya . and because it's soft, alcohol was unlikely to contain somalis who are almost exclusively muslim. oh, it's hard need to drink parallels with the really just one as in other putting africa. and this is perhaps what the perpetrators will wanted. but carissa has a history of religious tolerance and it's a months she the tons, grief. this is a memorandum which was i get it upon by the muslims call us and lead us in god is a town particularly after the killing of the 9 people. and last week, we are against what, what is going on on we condemn with their strongest to why disposable. i find he's
9:13 am
not busy against the teachings of islam, which says that canaan off one innocent soul ease equal to killing all other people off on, on this off. for the outsider, these offers are confusing picture. the herders and motions, residents, any moms, all denounced the attacks and yet no one comes forward to help the police. but to understand these products, you don't need to look too far. when i talk to like these are called, the government flooded the town with police. not just local police from the province, but the riot police from night or the perpetrators know this on are long gone. living the residents of the town to face the 1st and all too often, the forces act like an occupying army, a
9:14 am
one of the things i loved about my hometown was the way it came alive in the cool of the evening. now a cuff, you sense every one home at dusk, living the streets empty and leading to unflattering comparisons with somalia notoriously dangerous capitol. at nighttime, in his found his dislike militia, he has been effectively treated better than that if, as you're speaking now, because it's honest as yet that to my time, you know, to polish mon morgan, not his civilian movie. in what ways has the security, the killings affected the people in town? 60 percent have no idea. have never been issued the day because you know, they still congested with and without any of these issues. now with desperate youth in a bad position, whereby they don't have a defense. if you don't have a degree, you're like an ally. then it has led to so many we've, you've been arrested. some of them been taken that where we don't know up to enough
9:15 am
youth, a finding himself cornered in both said they have been here. they have been to bad sub supervisor here. they've been given the i don't have a government that has failed to issues on people with identity current, then arresting them is not lost on the population. nor is the real reason behind the round ups. unable to prevent these killings or catch the proper treatise, the government falls back on a tripe, untested formula form of is province collective punishment. although gary saw seen almost 2 decades of peace before the current violence. my generation on that of my parents and grandparents are all too familiar with these tactic. for me, the 1st taste of what it was to be a kenyan somali came in 1980 when i was only 5 years old for government officials had been shot dead in a bind getty set by
9:16 am
a group of unknown gunman. that night the police came to only boat. this is well housewares. it's been almost 40 years, but i still remember playing with my friends on the streets here. part of a closely knit community that was completely destroyed. i remember during that night we were forced to slip, it's was it on 10 o'clock at night and suddenly we will, will, can up by loud noises of people running away as well as at a lot of it kills happening around us. now when we got out of our house, if it wasn't any thing like what you're seeing here right now, it was a mud ruled fudged house. and when we stood outside, we saw so many people running away in this direction. some of them running with their keyed so women are looking for their kids and shouting loudly,
9:17 am
the names of the children. and when we looked in this direction, we saw the flames lifting the sky. most of the houses around here was on fire. the policeman, one not far away from us last moment and you could hear them shouting the siding of the guns. and suddenly we joined the people who were running away for their lives. and then i remember on the other side or for a house was a house that belonged to one of my dogs. very good friends. and we had that some of the soldiers will already in there. and moments later, as we were running away, we could hear him shouting as he was shot dead. despite the unhappy memories, finding myself here again after so many years, that temptation to see the place i spent my earliest is, is too strong to resist. allow oliver. but in these times, no guest is welcome and it takes
9:18 am
a while to overcome the current owners suspicion today how i was chicken. it's a bit funny that i have to say permission to see the spot where i was born. i am a little the rank of frontier. then there is an i've been via of morgan and morgan again had witnessed as my guest. only the briefest glimpse of where i used to leave before the lady changes her mind. but after our house was burned down, my parents were left with nothing, no compensation, no apology was still the government simply give the land to some one else, living us destitute. they know that they're not the original owner of the london not belong to them from the beginning, but maybe they bought it from the puzzle. who got it off the we was ejected out, but still, you know, they know the circumstances with which they got this lunch. so it's painful and say, winful. experience of losing everything you have at such
9:19 am
a young age is hard to explain it as in part shaped jolla. maybe it's what pushes me to report on other places destroyed by conflict. we spent several years living in rented accommodations until my father had saved enough to buy another plot of land. it's been hard being in town without coming straight to see her as i usually would said that my father never went to school but spent his whole life walking as a house builder to ensure that my sister, my brother, and i got the opportunity. he never hud listen. after a lifetime of had to walk ready, now we can look after him. a. my father's memories of that night are clouded by the passing years. but some details remained vivid. well, there were already a mark can have a who barely. huh. yeah,
9:20 am
i saw him and his got to see all her in her over and over the you little hub or was 0 here is area i market 40 or get marty will gray. ah, he'll come welcome. we'll get ah, a mattress m. as a me, morgan marie, i haven't held him on my do i want a store called ah, i on her. i okay. let me know i'm, is there any way me or hassle id or a summary he was so we had they by the okay. i louis, wow, there are somebody seen i'm almost a little kn miss. what kind of kn will the michela? ha ha ha ha ha ha marie ford her back in
9:21 am
a k and last me while i did, andrew, mary bagley and k. i had the, as julian and grew up at about bowie was jojo, then all from ali had the so who are you normally? ah, my father's attitude tried entity, simple. as long as he's picked the local language. he is kennedy about the school playground, where most of the town walk in tom, in the heat of a canaan. summer is to day the local football pitch do. but ali now are respected elder was the same it as this young man, when he was rounded up that night following the killing of the 4 government officials. there were 2 landra was military, landra was with the loudest because telling us, come out of your house, and if you don't come, you will, you will regret. so every morning in greece, i came to this sir, to this field. we were surrounded,
9:22 am
we stayed in the sun up to midday, and then around the city p. m. they said women can go to their homes. we thought they were kind the, they were good people by the leasing dillman. but it is one of the worst day of the history of this region where almost every woman was ripped. almost every woman was ripped, by the security for by the security forces and particularly by the emmy and the police. so we spend the night here. we stayed until the following day, you know, and then i think we were to leave this about or something, lake near city p. m. when several people died. the but it is government did not subject to the most to what the families have. this objected must, by my is government and kenneth has gone. i still don't understand what would make
9:23 am
the government want to punish an entire community an entire town. you know, the government is not that the government was not our government. that government or asked law a legacy because we're not muddled up government. we hadn't, we did not have ministers. we didn't without even though it's in as a result in the government. so it was more or less like they put a tory, a government claiming to put a send the back people ah comparisons with upper types of african, the british treatment of kenya's mile mile independence fight as may seem far fetched. but the level of violence used by the whites to maintain power in the last half of the 20th century pails into insignificance when compared to the violence used against my community. but the war between kenyon somalis and the
9:24 am
kenyan government known disparagingly as the shift to all bundled war has remained one of africa's forgotten conflicts. that british hunt always rule this area, which they called the mole frontier district or an f d. with a very light hand. they saw the somalis as good soldiers, but bad subjects. as a somali, if you wanted to cross that tunnel, remain to kenya, you needed to seek permission. the n f d was to all intents and purposes, a separate country. when kenya's independence was being negotiated in 96, the to the british agree despite strong opposition from kenyan leaders by the end of the you will get a chance to vote on whether to join somalia or ken the commission. they sent us published, overwhelming support for joining somalia, but the british won willing to split the country on the eve of independence,
