Nairobi (SD) – The Kenyan parliament has discussed the current diplomatic row between Kenya and Somalia, after the Somali government expelled the Kenyan ambassador in Mogadishu and recalled its ambassador to Nairobi.
Aden Barre Duale, a member of the Kenyan parliament, said that the Kenyan Ministry of Foreign Affairs had responded positively to the Somali government’s decision to expel the Kenyan ambassador and summoned their ambassador to Kenya.
Abdullahi Bashir Sheikh, a lawmaker from Mandera North, said it was surprising that Somalia political campaign was more active in Nairobi than in Mogadishu, and it is speculated that it appears that the election looks like its taking place in Nairobi and not in Mogadishu.
Somalia’s minister of Information, Osman Abukar Dubbe, held a press conference in Mogadishu this week accusing the Kenyan government of intervening Somalia’s internal and political affairs, and Nairobi were attacks are launched from.
Kenya’s foreign affairs ministry denied Somalia’s assertions and said it will seek diplomatic remedies privately.
