بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
نبارك لإخواننا الشباب المجاهدين في الصومال ذلك الإنجاز النوعي وتلك الغزوة الرائعة في
نيروبي،مستهدفة اهم رموز الاستخبارات اليهودية والصليبية
لعلنا ندردش قليلاً ونقف بعض الوقفات الاعتبارية على غزوة نيروبي أو كما سماها الشيخ مختار ابو الزبير ببدر نيروبي وقد صدق
لغزوة تجمع بين قتال الدفع والطلب في آن واحد،دفع صائل الكينيين الصليبيين بسبب اعتداءاتهم على الشعب الصومالي المسلم،والحد من تواجدهم العسكري
ثم هو جهاد طلب لأن المجاهدين سعوا الى قتال حلفاء كينيا الأمنيين والعسكريين من رؤوس المخابرات الصهيوصليبية اضافة الى كسر الحاجز الأمني
غزوة تجاوزت كل الحدود، مثلها مثل غزوات القاعدة المباركة،واقصد الحدود المصطنعة الجغرافية والعرقية والسياسية والوطنية والوثنية بكل انواعها
غزوة بصمتها قاعدية استهدفت رموز الصهيوصليبية واحدى اهم مقراتها الأمنية في افريقيا،لا يمكننا ان نحصي المنافع والثمرات،سيحتاج ذلك الى مجلدات
غزوة بدر نيروبي،نعم لأنها جسدت معالم وخصائص غزوة بدر الأولى،لأنها بين ايمان وكفر،وبين تجبر وغطرسة الكفار وتواضع وإخلاص المؤمنين،
ارجو من الإخوة والأخوات عدم التسرع في التعليق على الغزوة لأنها لم تنته بعد،ولا تصدقوا اخبار الأعداء،انتظروا واستقوا الخبر اليقين من اخوانك
الحصيلة النهائية لم تظهر بعد واسمعوها من أفواه ومنابر المجاهدين،التريث مطلوب وتأكدوا أن الضربة كانت قاصمة لأعداء الله وفتح عظيم لأهل الحق
اقرأوا اخبار العدو بعين الريبة دائما فلن يستطيعوا كشف كل الحقائق،لأن الغزوة قد كشفت ضعفهم وهشاشة مؤسساتهم الأمنية والعسكرية على حد سواء
نعم،غزوة بين قلة في العدد والعتاد وقوة ايمان وبين كثرة الباطل وقوة عتاده مع ضعف ايمانه وثباته أمام ثبات واصرار فتية الغزوة وحنكتهم العسكرية
انا قلت ننتظر الأخبار النهائية والصادقة من اخواننا الشباب،هم المخولون الوحيدون للتحدث عن مخلفات وتفاصيل الغزوة وفق ما يرون فيه المصلحة
لا تنسوا يا افاضل أن الأعداء سيحاولون الحد من آثار الغزوة الإيجابية على أهل الحق ومحاولة تقزيم الغزوة وتصويرها لتسيء للمسيرة الجهادية عموما
اكيد ان الإخوة الشباب ينتظرون الوقت المناسب للإعلان عن التفاصيل واكيد ايضا ان هناك تواصل مستمر بين جنود الغزوة وقادتهم وخطة مفصلة لكل مرحلة
أرجو تكثيف الدعاء لإخوانكم بالنصر أو الشهادة والإثخان في اعداء الله،ويقيننا في الله أنهم قد فازوا بما خرجوا من أجله ولن يضيع الله اعمالهم

English translation of audio message from Ḥarakat al-Shabāb al-Mujāhidīn’s Shaykh Mukhtar Abū al-Zubayr: “Regarding the Westgate Operation”
All praise is due to Almighty Allah, the Lord of the worlds, and victory is for the Muttaqeen (the pious believers) and there is no animosity except against the oppressors, and may peace and blessings be upon the noblest of Prophets and Messengers. As for what follows:
Allah, the Exalted, said:
“And when they advanced to meet Jalut (Goliath) and his forces, they invoked: “Our Lord! Pour forth on us patience, and make our feet firm and make us victorious over the disbelieving people.
So they routed them by Allah’s Leave and Dawud (David) killed Jalut (Goliath), and Allah gave him [Dawud (David)] the kingdom and Al-Hikmah (Prophethood), and taught him of that which He willed. And if Allah did not check one set of people by means of another, the earth would indeed be full of mischief. But Allah is full of bounty to the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists)
And the Messenger of Allah, may peace and blessing be upon him, said:
“I have been sent ahead of the Hour with the sword so that Allaah will be worshipped alone without partners, and my provision has been placed under the shade of my spear, and humiliation has been decreed for those who go against my command”
On Saturday 21 September 2013, and which was just 10 days after the anniversary date of the blessed 911 operations, a battle which is among the epic battles in the history of Islam began in Nairobi, and in which some of the Mujahideen Martyrom Seekers have written with their blood. Allah has honoured the Mujahideen fighters to write this epic battle – the Badar of Nairobi – with their blood and to change the course of history and avenge the deaths of the weak, oppressed Muslims.
The Mujahideen fighters refused to accept the invasion of their Muslim lands and the massacre of innocent Muslims and live with such humiliation. They could not accept the persistent theft of their land’s resources which the Kenyan leaders and Western companies have conspired to plunder.
The Mujahideen fought against the oppression of their brothers in prisons of the Crusaders and their apostate allies, delivering a message that said: “as long as our brothers are being oppressed in prisons, peace will never come to the oppressors who are holding them.”
So, we say to them, congratulations and we give them glad tiding of the prophet’s words, may peace and blessings be upon him, when he was asked:
“Which of the martyrs is best? He said: “Those who, when they take up their position in the ranks for battle, do not turn their faces away until they are killed. They will be in the highest dwellings in Paradise, and their Lord smiles upon them, and when your Lord smiles upon a slave in this world, he will not be brought to account.”
In another narration, when the Prophet, peace be upon him, was asked:
“What type of jihad is best? He said: “The one whose horse is killed and whose blood is shed.”
So congratulations! You have renewed the fact that the Mujahideen’s objective of Jihad is deposing the apostate tyrants, supporting the weak and standing in the face of oppression. You have manifestly proven how valuable the blood of the Muslim is and how the Mujahideen take great measures to safeguard the inviolable blood of the Muslims.
Many lessons can be derived from this epic battle ‘Badar of Nairobi’. The battle is a testament to the power of Eeman [faith] and clearly illustrates that nothing can stand against it.
Allah, the Exalted, says:
“You killed them not, but Allah killed them. And you (Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) threw not when you did throw, but Allah threw, that He might test the believers by a fair trial from Him. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.
This (is the fact) and surely, Allah weakens the deceitful plots of the disbelievers.”
The attack at Westgate Mall was to torment the Kenyan leaders who’ve impulsively invaded the Islamic Wilaayat. It was also a retribution against the Western states that supported the Kenyan invasion and are spilling the blood of innocent Muslims in order to pave the way for their mineral companies. It also acts as a clear testament to the historical blunder that the Kenyan government made when it decided to invade the Islamic Wilaayaat.
The attack has also glaringly illuminated the sheer vulnerability of the different sections of the Kenyan forces, be they police, intelligence or the military, and this was demonstrated by the utter failure that their forces came against when they tried to storm the building that was occupied by the Mujahideen.
Allah, the Exalted, says:
“The likeness of those who take (false deities as) Auliya’ (protectors, helpers) other than Allah is the likeness of a spider who builds (for itself) a house; but verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider’s house – if they but knew.” [Ankaboot, 41]
The attack is also a slap in the face of on the dwindling economy of the Kenyan government and has also successfully foiled the clandestine schemes of the Zionist Jews in Kenya. It’s a disaster for the Western politicians and their intelligence apparatuse who have miserably failed to save their own citizens.
We tell the Kenyan public: You have entered into a war that is not yours and is serving against your national interests. You have voluntarily given up on your security and economy and lost many of your sons. You are taking an active part in the massacres that are being perpetrated by your military in Kismayo and the neighboring regions. That is so because it’s you who have chosen your politicians, the taxes that you pay are being used to arm Uhuru Kenyatta’s army that is actively killing Muslims and it’s you who have supported your government’s decision to go to war.
Allah, the Exalted, says:
“And those who disbelieve say: “We believe not in this Qur’an nor in that which was before it.” But if you could see when the Thalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) will be made to stand before their Lord, how they will cast the (blaming) word one to another! Those who were deemed weak will say to those who were arrogant: “Had it not been for you, we should certainly have been believers!
And those who were arrogant will say to those who were deemed weak: “Did we keep you back from guidance after it had come to you? Nay, but you were Mujrimin (polytheists, sinners, disbelievers, criminals)
Those who were deemed weak will say to those who were arrogant: “Nay, but it was your plotting by night and day: when you ordered us to disbelieve in Allah and set up rivals to Him!” And each of them (parties) will conceal their own regrets (for disobeying Allah during this worldly life), when they behold the torment. And We shall put iron collars round the necks of those who disbelieved. Are they requited aught except what they used to do?” [Saba, 31-34]
Now, you still have an opportunity to reflect and reach a conclusive decision and hold your politicians to account. Do not wait for Uhuru kenyatta to bring about a solution to your problems as he has no further objectives beyond that presidential seat. It was he who spilt the blood of thousands of ordinary Kenyans during the previous elections and is today prepared for thousands more of your sons to die inside their country as well as abroad in order for him to prolong his stay in power, please his Western masters and accomplish their objectives. Do not be misled by the International Criminal Court as it’s simply a facade to create further publicity for Uhuru.
There is no way that you, the Kenyan public, could possibly endure a prolonged war in Somalia and you cannot also withstand a war of attrition inside your own country. So make your choice today and withdraw all your forces from the Islamic Wilaayaat, otherwise be prepared for an abundance of blood that will be spilt in your country, economic downfall and displacement.
Allah, the Exalted, says:
“Fight against them so that Allah will punish them by your hands and disgrace them and give you victory over them and heal the breasts of a believing people
And remove the anger of their (believers’) hearts. Allah accepts the repentance of whom He wills. Allah is All-Knowing, All-Wise.” [At-Tawbah, 14-15]
And the last of our call is that all praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
HSM Press Office
New statement from Ḥarakat al-Shabāb al-Mujāhidīn: “Claiming Responsibility for the Westgate Mall Attack in Nairobi”
HSM has on numerous occasions warned the #Kenyan government that failure to remove its forces from Somalia would have severe consequences
The Kenyan government, however, turned a deaf ear to our repeated warnings and continued to massacre innocent Muslims in Somalia #Westgate
By Land, air and sea, #Kenyan forces invaded our Muslim country, killing hundreds of Muslims in the process and displacing thousands more
The attack at #WestgateMall is just a very tiny fraction of what Muslims in Somalia experience at the hands of Kenyan invaders. #Wetsgate
The Mujahideen entered #Westgate Mall today at around noon and are still inside the mall, fighting the #Kenyan Kuffar inside their own turf
Since our last contact, the Mujahideen inside the mall confirmed to @HSM_Press that they killed over 100 Kenyan kuffar & battle is ongoing
What Kenyans are witnessing at #Westgate is retributive justice for crimes committed by their military, albeit largely miniscule in nature
The attacks are just retribution for the lives of innocent Muslims shelled by Kenyan jets in Lower Jubba and in refugee camps #Westgate
The message we are sending to the Kenyan govt & Public is and has always been just one: remove all your forces from our country #Westgate
BREAKING: HSM Press has just made contact with the Mujahideen inside #Westgate Mall. They are still fighting and still strong. Stay tuned!
Only Kuffar were singled out for this attack. All Muslims inside #Westgate were escorted out by the Mujahideen before beginning the attack
They Kenyan govt is pleading with our Mujahideen inside the mall for negotiations. There will be no negotiations whatsoever at #Westgate
HSM Press has once again made contact with the Mujahideen at #Westgate and obtained voice recordings from some of them
They all spoke comfortably and praised Allah to have been chosen for such an operation. The recordings will be made public soon in sha Allah
10 hours have passed and the Mujahideen are still strong inside #Westgate Mall and still holding their ground. All praise is due to Allah!
Clueless #Kenyans should demand answers from their government regarding #Westage, Mwiba wa kujichoma hauambiwi pole
Funny how the Kuffar are quick to cry foul and gnash their teeth about minor incidents, while their military is killing thousands of Muslims
Defending our Muslim lands is one of the foremost obligations after faith & defending against the aggressive enemy is our right as Muslims
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Korogwe (14/09/2013) – MYC in Kenya, Tanzania and Somalia have been following the recent reports in the media regarding the fate of Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki. On immediately hearing the reports, MYC contacted a senior Kenyan Mujahid in Somalia to confirm the accuracy of the reports. On 13 September 2013, we received a response that strongly suggests the reports of Al-Amriki’s fate are accurate.
For over two years MYC has been a strong critic of Al-Amriki. In this time, we have campaigned for appropriate and swift action against him in his relentless attempt to divide Al-Shabaab and malign our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr (May Allah protect him for the Mujahideen in East Africa).
While many Mujahideen in East Africa will hold strong reservations regarding the reported fate of Al-Amriki, we urge those Mujahideen to fear Allah and honestly reflect on who Al-Amriki was and who he regrettably became during his final days as a member of the “Muhaajireen”. For those that need reminding:
There can be no doubt that Al-Amriki took Hijra to Somalia to carry out Allah’s work in defense of a land under siege by feral Kuffars supported by their apostates helpers. Over the years, with Allah’s blessings he continued to grow in stature amongst the Mujahideen in East Africa and beyond. But with stature comes humility, a virtue that Al-Amriki obviously struggled with until his sad end. Rather than show humility, he embarked on a journey of self-promotion coupled with arrogance that led to insubordination in Al-Shabaab.
At a time when our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr expected members of the Muhaajireen to unite under their shared conviction of defeating the Kuffar in Somalia, Al-Amriki consciously opted to sow discord within the Muhaajireen. Under the pretext of raising concerns over Al-Shabaab’s battle strategy and its overall direction of Jihad in East Africa, Al-Amriki began a personal, bitter and slanderous campaign against the beloved Amir of Al-Shabaab. With slanders to the right of him and unfound allegations to the left of him by Al-Amriki our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr blessed by Allah with patience and wisdom remained silent, composed and focused on Allah’s work of defeating the crusaders in Somalia.
In true Al-Amriki fashion to maintain his public presence, he sent out protests in various forms to the Mujahideen in AQAP and Al Qaeda with one objective: to discredit our humble Amir Abu Zubeyr and thus proving the “protests” and “concerns” were nothing but personal. Not content with the response and counsel from the wise Amirs in AQAP and Al Qaeda, Al-Amriki took to Twitter to entertain Kuffars and apostates alike with rumours and “reports” about “internal discussions” within Al-Shabaab. In an act of desperation, attempts were also made to influence the Mujahideen in East Africa with falsehoods about the situation in Somalia and the Amir of Al-Shabaab.
In the end, Al-Amriki’s road to self-destruction was culminated with him reportedly saying he had severed all links with Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda. Such an audacious statement was akin to declaring he intended to betray the Mujahideen in Somalia. Ultimately, betrayal has a price.
In our tweets and official statements we have repeatedly stated that no Mujahid is bigger than Jihad. Regrettably, Al-Amriki was deluded enough to believe his fame, and the respect he commanded would be suffice to make him indispensible when it came to Jihad in Somalia. It came down to Jihad in Somalia or Al-Amriki.
We ask Allah to forgive Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki for his misguidedness and judge him accordingly.

New statement from the Muslim Youth Center: “Swift and Appropriate Action Demanded to Deal with Abū Manṣūr al-Amrīkī”
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Mombasa (29/03/2013) – MYC in Kenya, Tanzania and Somalia together with the majority of Mujahideen in Kenya have taken the prudent step to offer counsel to our committed and sincere Muhaajireen brothers to request from our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr that Al-Shabaab immediately considers swift and appropriate action against Abu Mansoor Al-Amriki for his persistence in fomenting dissent both within the ranks of Mujahideen in Somalia and with Al-Shabaab followers outside Somalia.
For over a year, Abu Mansoor has continued to use his self-propelled “popularity” to engineer confusion and attempt to discredit senior Al-Shabaab leaders. More recently and sinister, Abu Mansoor has being trying without success to sow discord among our brothers in Al-Qaeda. It is now time that Abu Mansoor’s megalomania is dealt with swiftly and appropriately. His public display of petulance and obvious disregard for the global vision of Jihad must be addressed decisively.
Like any Mujahideen, Abu Mansoor is entitled to raise legitimate concerns as a Muhaajireen within Al-Shabaab or with like-minded Mujahideen organizations like Al Qaeda. His communication to our beloved Amir Sheikh Abu Baseer in AQAP was initially seen as a dignified and honest way to seek redress to his “greviances”. But in true Abu Mansoor fashion he refused to accept the wise counsel of the Amir in AQAP. Irritated and unable to accept the truth from Yemen, Abu Mansoor has endlessly resorted to both private and public criticism of our brothers in AQAP.
Recently, in Kenya, Abu Mansoor has been using social media to spread false reports about the situation of the Mujahideen from Kenya in Somalia. He erroneously claims East Africans are living in fear under Al-Shabaab and many senior Kenyan Mujahideen have fled Somalia to unilaterally start Jihad in East Africa. Nothing can be further from the truth: MYC and many other East Africans remain committed to Jihad, inside Somalia and beyond with the support and guidance of Al-Shabaab and AQEA. Attempts by Abu Mansoor to poison the minds of our cubs and lions will not be tolerated by MYC and should not be allowed by our brothers in Al-Shabaab and Al Qaeda.
With the grace of Allah, the Mujahideen are moving forward with their objective and vision of liberating Somalia from under the occupation of the Kuffar. Only recent did the brave Mujahideen of Al-Shabaab militarily dislodge Ethiopian troops from Hudur. It was of great surprise and regrettable to read on Twitter that Abu Mansoor was seeking to claim credit for this great victory claiming to have sent our beloved Sheikh Robow. Surely, such a misrepresentation by Abu Mansoor warrants decisive action.
While sad and unfortunate, the era of Abu Mansoor as an inspirer and inciter for those seeking to embrace Jihad is over, and Al-Shabaab must now put an end to Abu Mansoor’s public stunts.
We ask that Allah continue to give Amir Abu Zubeyr and our beloved Mujahideen in AQAP wisdom and patience.
UPDATE 4/3/13 1:44 PM: Here is an English translation of the below Arabic biography:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, Most Merciful
ﺍﻟﺤﻤﺪ ﻟﻠﻪ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺼﻼﺓ ﻭ ﺍﻟﺴﻼﻡ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺭﺳﻮﻝ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ
All praise is due to Allaah and may the peace and prayers be upon the Messenger of Allaah
أﻣﺎ ﺑﻌﺪ: ﻗﺎﻝ ﺗﻌﺎﻟﻰ:”
as to what follows, Allaah says:
“ﻭ ﻻ ﺗﺤﺴﺒﻦ ﺍﻟﺬﻳﻦ ﻗﺘﻠﻮﺍ ﻓﻲ ﺳﺒﻴﻞ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﺃﻣﻮﺍﺗﺎ ﺑﻞ ﺃﺣﻴﺎﺀ ﻋﻨﺪ ﺭﺑﻬﻢ ﻳﺮﺯﻗﻮﻥ ﻓﺮﺣﻴﻦ ﺑﻤﺎ ﺁﺗﺎﻫﻢ ﺍﻟﻠﻪ ﻣﻦ ﻓﻀﻠﻪ ﻭ ﻳﺴﺘﺒﺸﺮﻭﻥ ﺑﺎﻟﺬﻳﻦ ﻟﻢ ﻳﻠﺤﻘﻮﺍ ﺑﻬﻢ ﻣﻦ ﺧﻠﻔﻬﻢ ﺃﻻ ﺧﻮﻑ ﻋﻠﻴﻬﻢ ﻭ ﻻ ﻫﻢ ﻳﺤﺰﻧﻮﻥ”
As you know he is from the most famous callers to Islam in East Africa in general and in Kenya more specifically.
Rogo was accused of the destruction of the Intelligence Services in Nairobi Dar es Salaam 1998,
In 2002 he was arrested with the alleged charge of being involved in the Kikambala hotel bombing, in the Ugandan capital of Kampala, he was released in year 2005.
In 2010 Rogo left for Hijra to Somalia for preparation and Jihaad, he joined the military camp after passing his beginning stage, then he completed the remaining courses, and he was -Raheemahullah- hardworking, patient, and always advising his Brothers, always encouraging them
He was excellent in obedience and listening, and respecting his brothers as they would seek his counseling with the problems in the military camp and its issues. Despite his old age he would participate with his Brothers in all activities like cooking and his cooking was very delicious, (even all the Brothers always used to ask him to cook) bringing water, digging trenches and other arduous activities, he was a humble man with a forgiving character to everyone, and if they were in action he wouldn’t begin unless he consults his brothers out of his love and respect for them.
He was studying the book “Mashaar’i al-Ashwaaq ila Masaar’i al-‘Ashaaq
And that day just after finishing from the Camp with his Brothers, he participated in a training ambush with live bullets, and they had to retreat after the ambush quickly to a meeting place, and it had been like that until he was strained -Raheemahullaah- but he was very pleased with this work.
After the leaving the training camp, the Brothers has to walk a long distance till they reached the place of the car, so they walked for a complete night and he was so patient may Allah have mercy upon him. After arriving at Mogodisho, some Brothers came to him to take him to the front-lines to inspire the Brothers, as he was known especially to the Kenyan brothers, whenever they would leave he would take permission.
After the strategic period ended he faced one of the fronts close to Mogodisho with his Brothers and there was a link to take advantage of their time in the Front
He had a share in delivering
And after a period the Brothers left the Front heading towards Mogodisho, and from there he traveled -Raheemahullaah- to the City of Kismayo from there returning back to Kenya, and the Kenyan Intelligence Services did not leave him in his position, they had harrased in all the time as he was put imprisoned a number of times then released.
In year 2012 America imposed restrictions on him with a travel ban, as well as freeze funds, and all of that was with a charge of what is called supporting “Terrorism”
In the last lecture he gave in May 2012, Rogo said that he is ready for the Shahadah and he hopes to become a Saheed for the sake of his religion, and on the 27th of August the same year he opened the “Unidentified Gunmen” n the car as he was with his Wife taking her to the hospital, so he was killed Shaheed -may Allah have mercy upon him-

We ask Allaah the All-able Protector that He writes for your reward and good deeds, and that He makes for you a place in al-Firdaws and those who He blessed from amongst the Prophets, the Truthfull, the Martyrs and the Righteous and those are the best of companions.

كما أنه من أشهر الدعاة في شرق أفريقيا عامة و كينيا خاصة، و قد إنتشرت خطبه المسجلة والمرئية بين المسلمين في شرق إفريقيا.
أدين روغو بتورطه في أحداث تدمير وكر المخابرات في نيروبي ودار السلام سنة 1998،
وفي سنة 2002 إعتقل بتهمة المشاركة في تفجير الفندق في العاصمة الأوغندية كامبالا،وتم الإفراج عنه سنة 2005.
في سنة 2010 خرج روغو مهاجرا إلى الصومال للإعداد والجهاد،إلتحق بالمعسكر بعد أن مرّ على بدايته فتره،ثمّ أكمل ما بقي من الدورات،وكان رحمه الله مجتهدا صبورا ناصحا لإخوانه دائم التحريض لهم.
وكان يمتاز بالسمع والطاعة وإحترم إخوانه،كما كانوا يستشيرونه في مشاكل المعسكر وأموره، ورغم كبر سنه فقد كان يشارك إخوانه جميع الأعمال كالطبخ(و قد كان طبخه لذيذا، حتى أن الإخوة كانوا يطلبون منه الطبخ دائما) والإتيان بالماء و حفر الخنادق إلى غيرها من الأعمال الشّاقة،وكان رحمه الله متواضعا سمحا خلوقا مع الجميع،و إذا هم بفعل لا يبدءه حتى يشاور إخوانه من حبه وإحترامه لهم .
كما وكان يُدرِّس إخوانه كتاب “مشارع الأشواق إلى مصارع العشاق” .
و ذات يوم وقبل الخروج من المعسكر شارك مع إخوانه في التدريب على كمين بالرصاص الحيّ،وكان عليهم الإنسحاب بعد الكمين بسرعة إلى مكان الإلتقاء، و قد جرى حتى أجهد رحمه الله، لكنه كان مسرورا بهذا العمل جدا.
وبعد الإنتهاء من المعكسر، كان على الإخوة مشي مسافة طويلة حتى يصلوا إلى مكان السيارة،فمشوا ليلة كاملة وكان صابرا رحمة الله عليه،وبعد الوصول إلى مقديشو، جاءه بعض الإخوة ليأخذوه إلى الخطوط الأمامية لتحريض الإخوة، لأنه كان معروفا وخصوصا عند الإخوة الكينيين،و كل ما هم بالخروج أخذ الإذن رحمه الله.
وبعد إنتهاء فترة الإستراحة، توجه لإحدى الجبهات قرب مقديشو مع إخوانه، وهناك رابط مع الإخوة مستغلين وقتهم في الجبهة،
وكان له نصيب في إلقاء
و بعد فترة غادر الإخوة الجبهة متجهين صوب مقديشو، و من هناك سافر رحمه الله إلى مدينة كسيمايوا ومنها عاد إلى كينيا، ولم يتركه عناصر مخابرات كينيا بحاله، فقد كانوا يضايقونه كل الوقت، كما أنه سجن عدة مرات وأفرج عنه.
وفي سنة2012 فرضت أمريكا عقوبات عليه بمنع السفر و تجميد الأموال، و كل ذلك بتهمة ما يسمونه دعم “الإرهاب”.
وفي آخر محاضرة له في مايو 2012 قال روغو أنه مستعد للشهادة ويتمنى أن يكون شهيدا من أجل دينه، و في 27 أغسطس من نفس السنة، فتح “مسلحون مجهولون” النار على سيارته بينما كان يقل زوجته إلى المستشفى فقتل رحمه الله .
ومن ردود الفعل بعد مقتله خرجت مظاهرات في مدينة مومباسا في منطقة ماجنكو،حيث يوجد المسجد الذي كان يأم الناس فيه، و تم الهجوم على كنيستين، كما و قد قام المتظاهرون بإشعال إطارات السيارات في الطرقات، وقد قتل 2 من ظباط الشرطة وجرح 16 آخرون.
غداة ثوى إلا أشتهت أنها قبر
عليك سلام الله دوما فإنني

والحمد لله رب العالمين.
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful the Most Beneficent
Majengo (19/03/2013) – MYC in Kenya, Tanzania and Somalia can confirm that on 17/03/2013, Mujahid Ruta, a much loved and respected Mujahid from Mtaani received his Shahada at the hands of the Kuffar.
Information suggests that Mujahid Ruta had walked into ‘Angola’ after leaving the Mosque and was shot in the head by two unidentified Kuffars. MYC views this as a callous execution by the Kuffar and a futile attempt to weaken the morale of the Mujahideen in Kenya in their support for Al-Shabaab and Al-Qaeda in East Africa.
In his last moments, as Mujahid Ruta struggled with life on the operating table he was surrounded by friends and the Mujahideen of Mtaani. Within minutes the Mujahideen and friends were carrying his lifeless body through Mtaani to his final resting place to bestow upon him a Mujahideen burial.
Mujahid Ruta’s execution while painful is an exemplary way to receive a Shahada as a Mujahid in East Africa. In spite of the obvious risk to his personal security, Mujahid Ruta chose to serve Allah first and fight the Kuffar courageously in three ‘area codes’ on behalf of the Ummah. For those that were fortunate to know Mujahid Ruta personally, we now understand his favourite phrase: “the rest is left to Allah”.
At this difficult and painful time for MYC, we ask the Mujahideen in Kenya and Tanzania to redirect their anger and obvious desire for revenge to love and support for the family of Mujahid Ruta. They have been denied a loving husband and father. Our duty now is to show and offer support to Mujahid Ruta’s family.
We ask Allah to accept Mujahid Ruta as a martyr.
