0

NAIROBI: Using chalk and a blackboard, Kenyan teacher Ayub Mohamud writes out a simple lesson in front of the packed classroom: “Islam versus violent extremism.” Mohamud, a teacher in the capital Nairobi’s Eastleigh suburb, teaches business and Islamic studies but also discusses the deradicalization of students, and is one of 10 teachers from across the world up for a $1 million (911,000 euro) prize this Sunday for his efforts. He began giving anti-extremism classes three years ago, shortly after Kenyan troops crossed into neighboring Somalia to attack gunmen from the Al-Qaeda linked Shebab.
