By Nepjournal team:

Seven months after shallow mass graves were discovered in Lanbib area of Wajir County, a similar discovery was made yesterday in Mandera.

Among the bodies recovered was the one of Isnina Mohamed, a mother of two who was abducted on December 3, 2015 from her tea kiosk in Mandera town.

Condemnation for the extra judicial killings have been pouring in ever since with people from all walks of life calling for an immediate end to the heinous acts.

On twitter, several hashtags are currently trending including #EnforcedDisappearancesKE, #StopKillingSomalis.

Many argue such killings foster the very radicalization and violent extremism that Kenya is purporting to fight.

  There are feelings of blanket condemnation and target.



Sympathy from concerned citizens.


Calls for an end to impunity.

Investigative blogger drops bombshell with more revelations:



And what did the police say about the whole incident?
