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.

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.

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful the Most Beneficent

Tanga (12/01/2013) – Over the past weeks MYC in Kenya and Tanzania have received numerous queries on the status of Abu Mansur Al-Amriki, and asked to confirm whether he has been “detained”, “executed” or “expelled” by our beloved Sheikh Abu Zubeyr (May Allah preserve him for the cause) and Al-Shabaab in Somalia.

While we are aware of these reports, we remind our Mujahideen brothers in Kenya and rest of East Africa that the only legitimate authority on the current status of Abu Mansur Al-Amriki in Al-Shabaab and Somalia is Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr and his chosen spokespersons on the matter.

We encourage our inquisitive Mujahideen brothers to revisit and re-read the press release (“Abu Mansur Al-Amriki”) by our beloved brothers Al-Shabaab on 17 December 2012, regarding Abu Mansur Al-Amriki. The press release was a self-explanatory clarification by Al-Shabaab on the matter. In this regard, it is important that the Mujahideen in East Africa refrain from encouraging disunity among the Ummah over the issue of Abu Mansur Al-Amriki but focus on recommitting themselves to Jihad in East Africa under the umbrella of AQEA.

For those Mujahideen that seek to emulate the likes of Abu Mansur Amriki, we ask them to look at the tireless dedication shown by Amir Sheikh Abu Zubeyr and our Amir Sheikh Ahmad Iman Ali (May Allah continue to grant him wisdom), before making their choice of enhancing their image within the discourse of Jihad in East Africa. Jihad will never be about the image of one individual but the collective image of the Mujahideen.

We ask Allah to guide us all on the right path.

In the name of Allah the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent


In the last few months the story of Abu Mansur Al-Amriki has been playing out in the media circles, not only feeding the narrative of the Western media that deep ideological differences were beginning to devour the Mujahideen in Somalia, but also leaving the Muslim Ummah extraordinarily confounded with a string of video releases that have stimulated a wide range of diverse reactions.

In the light of these events, and for the sake of clarification of the intricacies surrounding the Abu Mansur saga, Harakat Al-Shabaab Al-Mujahideen hereby declares that Abu Mansur Al-Amriki does not, in any way, shape or form, represent the views of the Muhajireen in Somalia. The opinions expressed by Abu Mansur, the alleged frictions and the video releases are merely the results of personal grievances that stem purely from a narcissistic pursuit of fame and are far removed from the reality on the ground.

Following the footsteps of the Noble Messenger, Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him) and the pious predecessors before them, the Mujahideen remain faithful to the lofty aspirations of their faith, strengthened by the bond of brotherhood, motivated by the rewards of altruistic self-sacrifice for their Muhajireen brothers and their path illuminated by the creed of Al Walaa-Wal-Baraa (Alliance and Enmity). The Jihadi theatre nevertheless accommodates people of all sorts. Some, above others, occasionally rise to prominence often with little merit save for their uniqueness, and contrary to portrait of the grand strategist, recruiter and fund-raiser portrayed by the Western media, Abu Mansur Al-Amriki does not hold any position of authority within Harakat Al-Shabaab Al Mujahideen.

Despite their fair share of surprise at the turn of events, however, the Mujahideen did not immediately rush to reprimand him, but instead saw it appropriate to lean towards the noble path of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) in resolving the situation: that is Naseeha or giving advice to the brother.

To err is human, but Islamic Shari’ah has carved for us a clearly defined path for dealing with disputes should they arise and remedying the mistakes of our fellow Muslim brothers. For months the Mujahideen have been offering advice to Abu Mansur in private, without publicly rebuking him, employing every possible avenue to veil his faults, overlook his shortcomings and conceal the egregious errors he’d committed from the eyes of the Muslim Ummah, in the hope that Allah would guide him and us to the path of righteousness; for it remains obligatory upon the Muslims to offer sound advice to their brothers in religion, in the light of the Qur’an and Sunnah, and guide them towards that which is righteous. It is regrettable, however, that all such efforts have been fruitless despite the numerous attempts. Therefore, when a person rejects the sincere advice of his brothers in private, it becomes religiously and morally incumbent upon the Mujahideen to publicly advise the Muslim Ummah of his obstinacy and insistence on sowing disunity among the vanguards of this Ummah.

The series of video releases – one in March when the Kuffar were preparing to invade the Islamic Administrations in Lower Shabeelle region and another in October just after the Kenyans had invaded the port city of Kismayo, in Lower Jubba region – were intended to serve a broader purpose. Hence, the timing of the releases and the convergence of the entire East African nations upon the Mujahideen were not entirely coincidental occurrences but a calculated attempt to draw attention to the alleged voices of dissent within the ranks of the Mujahideen at a time when they were most likely to be under pressure from their enemies so as to cultivate the destructive seeds of disunity. But Allah is the best disposer of all affairs; the seeds failed to germinate ‘and the evil plot encompasses only him who makes it.’

We sincerely apologise to the Muslim Ummah in general and our Mujahideen brothers in all the fields of Jihad in particular for having to witness such childish petulance in one of the theatres of Jihad, reminding them that the caravan of Jihad cannot and will not, Insha-Allah, be derailed from its tracks or the spirit of this great Ummah dampened by the superficial allegations, frivolous ramblings and whimsical desires of those who wish to enhance their image at the price of Jihad and the Mujahideen, spreading discord and disunity in the process.
