A vessel bound for Mombasa was reportedly attacked last week by Somali ocean terrorists about 130 miles off the Tanzanian shoreline, while enroute to the Kenyan port of Mombasa, some 350 miles further to the North. Many of the crew took shelter in the engine room while the remaining crew on duty then switched off all lights and managed to escape into the emerging darkness after being fired upon by the terrorists and the vessel sustaining damage.

Calls have subsequently increased in East African shipping circles to strengthen naval capacity and dispatch navy ships into the affected areas to ensure safe passage for ships coming to and leaving the East African ports of Dar es Salaam and Mombasa, and to be given a mandate to relentlessly hunt the terrorists inside the territorial waters.

Meanwhile has Kenya also changed course vis a vis the prosecution of ocean terrorists caught and handed over into their legal system, after the EU has availed more funding for the prosecution of such cases in Kenyan courts and added logistical support to subsequently imprison them to serve their sentences once found guilty.
