Nairobi - Two men of Somali origin have been charged in a Nairobi Court for joining the Kenya Defence Forces KDF using fake identification documents.
The two, Ibrahim Abdi Farah and Said Dayib Sheikh are accused of obtaining places in the KDF using false identities.
The Prosecution at the Nairobi magistrate's court stated that the two acquired Kenyan IDs fraudulently which saw them pass the recruitment exercise
conducted by KDF and join the forces.
They then moved forward and attended training by the KDF before their story was found out and they were arrested at the Eldoret barracks.
One of the two, Abdi Farah, however claimed that he was falsely arrested and was a Kenyan citizen, stating that former deputy speaker Farah Maalim was his relative.
Maalim was in court to present himself as surety for Farah's release.
The two were released on cash bails of KES 100,000 each or a bond of KES 500,000.
