Politics and Society Somalis warned to stop seeking justice in Al-Shabaab courts

Somalia’s justice system is still yet to take shape. The slow pace of legal reformation has made many Somalis to look for justice in the mobile courts operated by Al-Qaeda-affiliated militant group Al-Shabaab. Al-Shabaab implements a strict and harsh interpretation of Islamic Sharia law, and new courts are being constituted in a bid to stop people from going to the Al-Shabaab courts.
