I had no role in Tana clashes, says minister

13 December 2012, 13:38

Mombasa - Daily Nation reports that, Defence minister Yusuf Haji has denied playing any role in the Tana River County clashes that left 100 villagers dead, homes and property destroyed and about 12,000 families displaced in August.

In his testimony before the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into the Tana River clashes sitting in Mombasa Thursday, Haji vehemently denied accusations linking him to the deadly clashes.

He particularly denied that his cattle strayed into Tana River and contributed to the escalation of tensions between the pastoralist and agricultural communities in Tana River.
