New Zealander freed after arrest in Kenya, near Somalia

A Kenyan court has freed a New Zealander held in police custody for several days on suspicion of links with extremism.

Sulub Warfaa, 36, spoke to journalists outside the court in Garissa, in northwestern Kenya.

“Just because I was born in Mogadishu does not mean that I am a terrorist,” he said.

“I did not get tortured. The officers they were just doing their jobs, you know, that’s what they were doing,” said Warfaa, adding “I’m really happy that I am free, you know, and actually finally justice has been served.”

Warfaa was arrested near Kenya’s border with Somalia for allegedly possessing two passports with different names.
