A Kwale court has given a warrant to arrest Nyali Member of Parliament Mohamed Ali over a surety he stood for a terror suspect.
This was after the said suspect Noordin Hassan Abdallah aka Kamanda failed to show up in court on October 4 and November 1.
The MP had before been summoned to court on October 4 however he evidently failed to show up constraining the Kwale Principal Magistrate to give the warrant the next day.
Ali had stood surety for Abdallah who jumped bail for an offense he is facing in court.
He was accused of the offense of being in control of radicalization articles vide case number 846/16 before being released.
Abdallah was arrested in 2019 in Shimoni in Kwale while supposedly leading enrollment and radicalization of youths into Islamic State terror group and was subsequently charged and released on bond.
Officials say Abdallah is an associate of Salim Rashid Mohamed alias Chotara alias Turki an IS operative who was recently filmed conducting a beheading in DR Congo.
He had in March 2020 been arrested in Mombasa subsequent to being caught on CCTV robbing two people, one of them a school girl.
He was however released on bond.
Police say they have not seen him from that point forward.
On Tuesday, Ali said he didn’t know about the said warrant.
He said, all things considered, the case is planned for hearing on November 18.
“We went to court and the case was planned for hearing this month on 18. Is there a warrant I am not mindful of? I’m not mindful to be straightforward,” he said.
He added he is prepared to help out specialists to figure out the issue assuming any.
Ali said he knows about the case and that he stood the guarantee well before he turned into a MP.
He said the suspect had been captured over an alternate matter of ownership of maryjane and he stood guarantee of Sh50,000.
At the point when the matter came ready for hearing, agreeing Ali, the court permitted him to search for the suspect and present him on November 18.
“I don’t have the foggiest idea how it changed on the grounds that the last time I attempted to pull out the guarantee they rejected and demanded I bring him. So we should return to court,” he added.
On Tuesday, Ali said he was not aware of the said warrant.
He said as far as he was concerned, the case is scheduled for hearing on November 18.
“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,” he said.
He added he is ready to cooperate with authorities to sort out the issue if any.
Ali said he is aware of the case and that he stood the surety long before he became an MP.
He said the suspect had been arrested over a different matter of possession of marijuana and he stood surety of Sh50,000.
When the matter came up for hearing, according Ali, the court allowed him to look for the suspect and present him on November 18.
“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,” he added.
