Somalia: School teachers caught planning Al-Shabaab curriculum


Somali school teachers were arrested for holding a meeting with Al-Shabaab representatives to influence the private education system, the Nigerian newspaper Daily Trust reported.

The teachers were willing to incorporate Al-Shabaab’s ideological influence in the school curriculum, at a school that holds 1,000 students aged seven to 15 years old.

Police arrested the teachers in the Hir-Shabelle region, near the town of Jowhar, the Information Minister Mahad Hassan Osman stated. No reports were found on whether Al-Shabaab members were arrested.

An investigation is planned to go ahead on the incident, which will be followed by a court case.

Al-Shabaab is a non-state armed group seeking to overthrow the government and implement a strict version of Islamic law across Somalia.
