How KSh50,000 surety for terror suspect landed MP Mohamed Ali in trouble

In Summary

  • Nyali MP Mohamed Ali could face arrest over a surety he offered for a terrorism suspect.
  • He says he offered the surety when the man was charged with being in possession of marijuana.

A court in Kwale has issued a warrant of arrest against Nyali MP Mohamed Ali over surety he stood for a terrorism suspect.

This is after Noordin Hassan Abdallah alias Kamanda failed to appear in court on October 4 and November 1.

Ali had also been reportedly been summoned on October 4 but failed to appear.

Abdallah was arrested in 2019 in Shimoni, Kwale County for allegedly recruiting and training youths into Islamic extremist groups.

Consequently, he was charged with being in possession of radicalization articles, but was released on bond after MP Ali’s intervention.

KSh50,000 surety

The terrorism suspect is allegedly an associate of Salim Rashid Mohamed alias Chotara alias Turki, who was recruited into ISIS about two years ago and is now a leader.

In his defense, the Nyali legislator claims he was not aware of the looming arrest warrant.

“We went to court and the case was scheduled for hearing this month on 18. Is there a warrant I am not aware of? I am not aware to be honest,” the Star quoted him.

According to him, he stood surety of KSh50,000 for the man, who he says had been charged with being in possession of marijuana, and not terrorism as with recent reports.

The former journalist claims he offered the same long before he was elected into the legislative position.

“I am ready to cooperate with authorities to sort out any issue if any,” Ali added.

He maintains that he had been directed to appear with the suspect in court on November 18, and not November 1 as he heard.

“I don’t know how it changed because the last time I tried to withdraw the surety they refused and insisted I bring him. So we are supposed to go back to court,” the DP Ruto ally added.
