These were his last words: “Everyone was born alone and whenever I die, I should be buried in accordance to Muslim rituals.”Suleiman Hassan, 27, spoke those words to his mother and then left home to go to Somali where he died fighting for the al Shabaab terrorists.Hassan, a devout Muslim who spent most of his time in mosques, was said to have left for Zanzibar for special religious teachings, only for his family to learn later that he was among dozens of youths recruited two years ago by the militia in South Coast.His mother Saum Mwachambuni is yet to come to terms with the death of her only son.“When I got news of his death, the words he told me the last day I saw him echoed in my mind. But I am not yet convinced that Hassan is dead. I hope one day I will see him coming back home smiling as he used to,” she said.The distressed mother said the caller from Somalia on April 5, described how his son was buried.
