Parties linked to terrorist activity should appear at the National Counter Terrorism Information Centre within five days.

Inspector General of police Joseph Boinett said on Friday that the centre would be located at the National Police service pavillion in South C.

“The entities suspected to be associated with al Shabaab should appear in person to demonstrate why they should not be declared a specified entity,” the IG said in a statement.

He urged members of the public who may have information on parties associated with terrorist organisations to report it to the centre, which would be open between April 13th to 17th.

This comes after the government gazetted a list of 86 individuals and businesses whose accounts were frozen for allegedly funding terrorism.

Treasury PS Kimani Thuge said the accounts had been red-flagged over suspicious financial activities.

He said the Financial Reporting Sector would investigate the suspicious transactions.

Thuge made the remarks during an inter-ministry press conference on the Garissa University attack that left 147 dead and 79 injured.
