Comments from Abdi Hosh (MP): Yaah, for real!!! What elections may I ask? and has Al-shabaab become a convenient fundraising prop?. This is very distasteful as there are other legitimate ways to solicit funds. Shame on you Nicholas Kay.

Abdi Hosh (MP): To state that Al-shabaab wants to disrupt the elections of next year (responding to Nicholas Kay comments) is just a hype because there can not be elections next year and Kay knows that and admits as much these days even public, but he is appealing to the donors by connecting Al-shabaab with the “noble democratic ideals” of elections, which is really a ” valuable brand” in so far as raising money.
