Intelligence analyzed by Strategic Intelligence Service shows that Muktar Robow also known as Abu Mansour has been trying to reach the Kenyan authorities to defect.

Robow is intelligent and a main pillar of the Somali militant Islamist group Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen.

His defection will deny Al-Shabaab vital manpower and intelligence. It is a big blow that, Shabaab will certainly lose all South of Somalia due to Robow’s influence there besides the tight noose by Kenya Defense Forces.
