Mogadishu to Halt Miraa Imports from Kenya over Somalia-Kenya Diplomatic Row

Somalia politicians today have discussed a resolution to punish Kenya for the arrest Somali diplomats in Nairobi, intelligence sources report.

A debate on Friday sought to push the government in Mogadishu to stop all imports of khat/miraa from Kenya as a punitive measure.

This embargo will be in retaliation to Kenya’s alleged mistreatment of Somali diplomats and refugees, Dr. Shir Waco a legislator said.

Kenya has arrested some Somali diplomats on terror related links in the recent past.

Legislators in Somalia sought to punish Nairobi for these actions by urging the buyers of khat/miraa and the government to ban the commodity from Kenya.

Former legislator, Ali Mohamud Farah reiterated Somalia’s displeasure with Nairobi and supported the Khat embargo.
