According to reports, Abdi Jeylani Malaq (43), known as Marshale, was killed by two young men yesterday as he left the radio station where he worked in Somalia. Marshale was a producer, performer, and one of Somalia’s most popular comedians. He took a chance when he chose to mock Islamist militants for brainwashing children, using child soldiers, and killing civilians, and he paid the price. “Hey, young boys, you can’t move back from the enemy shelling…instead just stay there and fight,” he said as he took on a role of an Al-Shabaab commander, and spoke via phone to young troops while he sat far away from the front-line in an ocean-side perch.
