In a notice seen by this publication on Monday, November 14, the Embassy identified the three wanted terrorists as Mahad Karate, Jehad Mostafa, and Ahmed Diriye.

The statement pointed out that the leaders were responsible for numerous attacks in Kenya and its neighbouring countries, leading to loss of  many lives.

"The U.S. Department of State’s Rewards for Justice {RFJ} is also offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the disruption of the financial mechanisms of al-Shabaab. This announcement marks the first time that the Department has offered a reward for information on al-Shabaab’s financial networks"

Through a senior US official, who spoke during a presser meeting on Monday, affirmed that vital information would help in unearthing the notorious group that has been terrorizing their daily running activities.

"To our Kenyan and regional partners, the United States is offering reward money for information that will lead to the identification and disruption of Al-Shabaab’s revenue sources and funding."

"Al-Shabaab is al-Qa’ida’s principal affiliate in East Africa. Al-Shabaab is responsible for numerous terrorist attacks in Somalia, Kenya, and neighboring countries that have killed thousands of people, including U.S. citizens. The Department of State designated al-Shabaab as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) and Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT) in March 2008.  In April 2010, Al-Shabaab was also designated by the UNSC’s Somalia Sanctions Committee pursuant to paragraph 8 of resolution 1844 (2008)".

The Embassy also stated that  the arrests of the leaders would curtail the numerous attacks in the region as well as hinder the financing and facilitation networks needed by the militia group for survival. 

"Al Shabaab relies on financing and facilitation networks to sustain its operations and plan terrorist attacks, if you have information about Al-Shabaab's illicit financial activities, submit a top via Signal, Telegram, or WhatsApp to one of the numbers listed," read part of the statement. /
