The mention of the terrorist militia group Al-Shabaab's name is enough to remind John Muriuki of the group's deadly attack that left his best friend and colleague, dead. John had travelled all the way to Northern Kenya with the hope of bettering his life through the quarry work he used to undertake back home in Nyeri. That was not to be. Luckily for him, he has lived to tell the story about that deadly ordeal. Tens of others were not so lucky.
