Premature Reports?

More confusion–BBC News reports that Kenyan authorities reported that “Jamaican Hate Cleric” al-Fairsal had once again been expelled and had departed for Jamaica. Or maybe he hasn’t left the country after all.

On the US side, I wrote approvingly of the denial of a travel visa for Kenyan Postmaster General Hussein Ali, the erstwhile head of the Kenyan Police, based on the widely reported news back on January 13. See the VOA story stating that Embassy officials had confirmed the visa denial.

Later reports say that the visa matter was “under review”. Surely keeping Ali out of the US is the least we can do in light of the UN’s Alstom Report on extrajudicial killings by the Kenyan police?
