War on terror ploy by government to woo Western Countries says Farah Maalim



Former Lagdera M.P and Deputy Speaker Farah Maalim sensationally claimed that the radicalization of youths and terror attacks were a ploy by the state to woo the western countries whose relationship with Nairobi has been thorny as a result of the cases in ICC.

Hon. Maalim was speaking at Orange house when ODM released a statement on the security situation of the country.

“The only way they can walk back to the international community is to say there is terrorism and we need your support to find a solution; this way they will work together,” Maalim said.

He has made the same claim in a recent interview with K24 TV.

He was flanked by Tarbaj MP Mohamed Elmi, former MP Reuben Ndolo, former Nairobi mayor George Aladwa, ODM executive director Magerer Langat and Ag. Party leader Hon. Anyang’ Nyong’o.

Already, some western diplomats met President Uhuru Kenyatta and assured him of their commitment to support his government in eliminating terror threats in the country.

Those who met the president at state house are: Commissioner of Australia H. E. Geoff Tooth, High Commissioner of Canada H. E. David Angell, High Commissioner of the United Kingdom H. E. Dr. Christian Turner and Ambassador of the United States of America H. E. Robert F. Godec.

The president confirmed this meeting on a post in his Facebook page on April 6.
