“The way America changed after 9/11 is the way Kenya will change after Garissa” – These words by William Ruto, the Kenyan deputy president heralded the dawning of a new strategy in the fight against Al-Shabaab. This strategy has come in the form of a wall stretching from the Indian Ocean to the city of Mandera. This wall symbolises Kenya’s current failing counter terrorism strategy and succeeds in distracting and deceiving Kenyans rather than defeating the threat posed by Al-Shabaab. The real threat to Kenya is not in Somalia but rather on its own side of the wall.

Al-Shabaab want to incite religious hatred in Kenya. This goal is failing as Muslim leaders have closed ranks with their Christian counterparts to display a united and determined face against terror. However, Christian’s must be weary of those within their ranks who are trying to redefine the war as a spiritual battle as al-Shabaab will only be defeated through unity.
