Maalim does not fear arrest over terror comments

17 April 2014, 17:59 William Korir

Nairobi - Former deputy speaker of the National Assembly Farah Maalim says he meant every bit of the comments he made on the government's alleged involvement in terror.

Maalim was quoted on a show in a local television station Wednesday as saying that there is a chance the government is involved in terror acts in the country in-order to gain favour from western nations.

He was quickly summoned by the Anti Terror Prevention Unit ATPU to explain his comments Thursday and after his summon, he was categorical that what he said was his right feeling.

" It is possible that the government is involved in terror to seek favour from western nations. That is my view and it remains that way, he said despite efforts of lawyer Haron Ndubi to have him keep quiet over the matter.

He said that he would be willing to go as far as possible to prove that his comments were true and that if he was taken to court, he would not have any issue.

" I have nothing to hide and nor am I afraid of anything. If there is any reason for the police to take me to court, we will meet in court, he added.

Maalim has raised questions over the government's role in the ongoing war on terror and has insisted that the current swoop on areas laden with Muslims is patronizing.

He has been joined by several leaders, including some in government like majority leader Aden Duale, who has also called the police arraignment and detention of Muslims as illegal.
