Questions for Kenyans to Ponder Over as Two Iranians Face Terrorism Charges in Nairobi
1. When did the two Iranian nationals – Ahmed Abolfathi Mohammed and Sayed Mansour Mousav who appeared in court on Monday facing charges of being in possession of 15 kg bomb making material enter the country?
2. Who had the duo come to visit in Kenya and where did they come from when they entered the country? For how long had they been in the country before they were apprehended?
3. When did police get the bomb-making material in their possession and in whose company were they? Did they enter into the country with the stuff, and if so, where was our security agents? Or was the material locally obtained (READ: Two Iranians Arrested in Mombasa With 15 Kgs of Explosive Materials, Deny Terror Charges)?
4. From which entry point did they manage to get into the country and did they have any valid travel documents by the time they were being arrested?
5. Since their arrest on June 20, 2012, did the security agents make any frantic efforts to establish their contacts in Mombasa that may have led to the recent blast in which one person was killed at Mishomoroni ?
6. Are there any connections between the two and any Kenyans who may be their contact persons before they duo entered the country? And whose visitors were they?
7. Has there been any prior contact between them with any locals? Who was there to welcome them to Kenya when they first arrived?
8. Can the security agents get details and the exact date they arrived from the surveillance cameras to ascertain who was there to welcome them into the country to unearth the mystery behind these two men?
9. Do their plea for release on bail citing medical problems a ploy to destroy police evidence in their investigations?
10. Where exactly do they come from in Iran and was this their first visit to Kenya? Are they Kenyan nationals and if so, who gave them permits?
