If you are a Somalia living or traveling to Kenya, your life is about to get even worse as UHURU’s Government fires another salvo-See what Kenya has directed?

Thursday May 30, 2019-The Kenyan government has fired yet another shot at Somalia following their diplomatic row over their protracted maritime border dispute.

A statement issued by the Foreign Affairs Ministry on Wednesday stated Kenya would no longer allow the entry of unaccompanied baggage from Somalia through its borders.

Kenya cited security issues as the key reason behind the new directive, adding that any unmanned luggage would be confiscated and destroyed moving forward.

"The Government of Kenya will henceforth not allow unaccompanied baggage from Somalia into the country. Such baggage will be confiscated and destroyed in line with applicable, air transport safety and security regulations and the carrier airline will be held responsible,” an excerpt of the statement disclosed.

According to reports, airlines found carrying such luggage would be punished, as this contravenes international air travel safety regulations and could pose a danger to travelers.

This comes just days after the Somali Government announced that it would steer clear from all future regional meetings held in Nairobi.

This is after Kenyan Government denied entry into the country a Somalia Minister and two MPs over the disputed oil blocks within Indian Ocean.
