Renowned activist Boniface Mwangi now claims a powerful Kenyan politician is doing illegal business with warlords from neighbouring Somalia.

Without giving his name, Mwangi said the individual is a member of the National Assembly who 'held a press conference a few years ago to say he has a list of who is funding terrorists in Kenya'.

"That politician and his North Eastern cartel run a contraband smuggling ring from Kismayo to Kenya. They also help coordinate how Somali warlords can invest their money in Kenya," he claimed in a long Facebook post.

Even though the activist did not mention his name, Garrissa Township MP Aden Duale is on record having threatened to expose people financing terrorists in the country.

In a press conference on April 6, 2015, Duale accompanied by several leaders from North Eastern pledged to give names of financiers and sympathisers of Al-Shabaab, within 30 days.

This was in the wake of a terror attack at Garissa University where at least 147 students and police officers perished in the horrific incident that shocked the world.

However, more than 3 years later, the list has never been produced as promised by the outspoken Garissa legislator.

Mwangi remarks come as detectives continue to pursue those responsible for the Dusit Hotel attack on Tuesday that claimed the lives of 21 people.
