Two Kenyans abducted in Mogadishu


Two Kenyan men are said to have been kidnapped in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

According to Shabelle, an independent media network, their vehicle was stopped at gunpoint near Tribunka, a former parade ground in South Mogadishu.

Reports indicate that those who stopped the car were in army uniform but their identities remain unclear.

During the Monday incident, the driver, of Somali origin, was left at the scene unharmed.

Sources said the only information available about the two Kenyans is that they are engineers who were working with a firm in Mogadishu.


No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

In January 2012, two Kenyan officials–Edward Yesse Mule and Fredrick Irungu Wainaina—were kidnapped in Wajir by Al-Shabaab militants. They were later freed in July 2013.

Another two were abducted in July 2012 from northern Somalia. The aid workers are yet to be traced.
