Eight Kenyan Members of Parliament from the North Eastern region held a secret meeting with Somali National Intelligence Service Agency (SINA) in Mogadishu without the knowledge of the Kenya government. Sources revealed that the MPs were cleared for departure to Mogadishu aboard Salaamair Air Express Flight WU-751 at 1115Hrs.
The objective of the meeting was not known and they were neither representing the Government of Kenya nor were they delegates of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The 8 are suspected to have gone to engage in subversive activities since their travel costs were indirectly facilitated by NISA. The politicians were checked in at a 2-storey building inside NISA Headquarters Compound in Mogadishu.
These 8 politicians who have been under government watch are sympathetic to Somali clan politics and have been involved in direct talks with the Somali Government which is sponsoring and orchestrating an NFD movement which wants to push a cessation discourse. The Federal Government of Somalia is brazenly inviting sympathetic Kenyan parliamentarians to NISA headquarters to pursue the destabilization of NEP-NFD.
Currently, the MPs are stranded in Somalia as Kenyan security personnel are keeping close eye on all airports, waiting to arrest them.
Those who went to Mogadishu include:
- Kullow Maalim
- Ahmed Kolosh
- Ibrahim Abdi
- Rashid Kassim
- Mohamed Hire
- Omar Maalim
- Bashir Abdulahi
- Adan Haji
NISA is led by former members of the Al-Qaeda affiliate in Somalia, Harakat Shabaab Al-Mujahideen. The agency is directly implicated in planning and funding Al-Shabaab operations along the border with Kenya, besides misleading AFRICOM with wrong target coordinates for precision airstrikes. NISA is on the radar of regional Military and Civilian intelligence agencies for facilitating travel for Al-Qaeda cells. It is also directly involved in the covert moving of mortars and MANPAD’s to Kenya with the intention of attacking 2 Hotels near the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi and downing aircraft’s in a coordinated terrorist attack in Kenya.
The 8 MPs are likely to face treason charges.
