Is Sheikh Muktar Abdirahman the Newest Verson of Godane

A prominent Al Shabaab leader known as Sheikh Muktar Abdirahman who has never spoke to media spoke to the Al Shabaab controlled radio telling listeners that Al Shabaab will continue their fight and will not give up, Radio Garowe reports.

Muktar stated that Al Shabaab's role is to bring the Sharia law to Somalia which can be brought back through jihad.

"Al Shabaab was founded to bring back jihad so we can govern our country and the citizens of Somalia by Sharia law," said Muktar speaking to Al Shabaab controlled radio.

Muktar gave a brief history of how Al Shabaab was founded by Adan Hashi Ayrow whose was killed in air raids in the town of Dusomareb and how his killing sparked the attacks from Al Shabaab in Mogadishu according to Muktar.

Al Shabaab is an off-shoot of the Islamic Courts Union (ICU), which splintered into several smaller factions after its defeat in 2006 by the Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the TFG's Ethiopian military allies.

Al Shabaab has lost their control in southern Somalia in August they admittedly retreated from Mogadishu vowing that they would continue their fight.
