Nairobi, May 20, 2019

Kenya has started denying Entry Visas to Somali officials, according to an informed source in Nairobi.

Some Somali officials have been reportedly let in for they hold dual citizenship with other countries.

This is a new political and diplomatic development as Kenya embarks upon a rough road to worsening relationships with its neighbor Somalia. The new Kenyan diplomatic restrictions raise a serious question as to how handle the AMISOM portion of KDF in Somalia.

One thought on “BREAKING NEWS”

  1. In my openion, Kenyan diplomatic restrictions raise many serious questions of which how to handle the AMISOM portion of KDF in Somalia is a small portion of far greater and serious questions. i summarize them as follows according to its magnitude:
    1: How to handle clan politics in Somalia which have been the force behind the formation of federal states that are member of Federal Government of Somalia
    2: How to handle federal state members current political deadlock with federal government that undermines any political progress
    3: How to handle Jubbaland state president who is in collusion course with Kenya
    4: How to handle AMISOM portion of KDF in Somalia
    5: Finally, Kenya thinks how a Farmajo government with no support in Mogadisho leave alone federal member states of which Jubbaland is the most staunch opponent and at same time a well cultivated close ally with Kenya, how such a weak government can undermine Kenyan interests
