Report summary

Since 2010, Somali Salafi-jihadi group Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen (al-Shabaab) has staged high profile attacks in Uganda and Kenya, with rumoured cells also operating in northern Tanzania. Kenya has been worst affected, and multiple oil-related assets in-country will face growing security risk going forward. The exploration blocks in the northeast and the proposed export pipeline both face high risks of targeted attack; there is also an elevated risk to expatriate personnel in Nairobi.
