Banned NGO's met with Obama

30 July 2015, 15:31 William Korir

Nairobi - It has emerged that Non Governmental Organizations NGO's banned by the government in recent months held talks with US President Barack Obama, the NGO Council of Kenya has said.

The NGO in question is Haki Africa.

The NGO had been banned by the government over allegations it was sponsoring radicalization of Muslim Youth in the country and as a result banned.

The NGO has always stated that its actions are not of that course.

However, it has now emerged that the NGO met with US President Obama whilst he was in the country last weekend.

Obama met the representatives of Haki Africa at the Kenyatta University where he spoke to them for an hour.

Obama had earlier lectured the government on ways of dealing with terrorism, stating that by hurting the NGO's and people working with minority groups in the war on terror, it would instead be causing problems.

" You cannot have an equal society which is safe by treating others in means that will make them feel aggrieved. It is creating a problem from within, Obama said during his speech at the Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani.

The government has accused Haki Africa and another NGO Muslims for Human Rights MUHURI of having links to terror group Al -Shabaab.

The groups denied the accusation, and say that they have been campaigning for the fair treatment of terror suspects. Haki Africa's accounts to this day remain frozen over the allegations.
