Sunatimes.com -A Somali telecommunication company [HORMUUD TELECOM] could be behind the recent surge in attacks on Kenyan communication masts, a confidential security report states.
"The HORMUUD TELECOM  wants to have complete monopoly in Somalia along the Kenyan border and 50 kilometres into Kenya in order to shut out Kenyan telcos,” the report states.

DELAY RESPONSE

In return for the attacks on the masts by the militants and other forms of support, the company is alleged to be paying al-Shabaab up to US$3 million (approximately Sh300 million), which enables the terror group to finance its operations.


"Additionally, the attacks on the masts by Al-Shabaab are part of a plot to ensure that the group advances its terrorist agenda. The terror group is trying to establish a pseudo-caliphate in north-eastern Kenya and Somalia,” the report adds.

So far this year, over eight communication masts have been destroyed by the militants, leaving the local communities and security personnel in a communication blackout.
