Kenya’s Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Macharia Kamau declared on Monday that the UN was giving 10 per cent of humanitarian aid to terrorists to grant safe passage of food and other supplies in war-torn regions controlled by the deadly militia group, as reported by Standard, Kenya.

Prof Kamau termed last Thursday’s UN resolution on terror financing as “contradictory”Going by earlier estimates placing annual budgets for aid for Somalia at $118 Million, the amounts earned by the terrorists disguised as funding for “capacity building” would be $12 Million.

His response came soon after the UN Security Council passed a vote ordering members states to enforce laws against terror financing.

It is a position that could attract fierce reactions from the US-based intergovernmental organisation while generating debate in in Kenya which has borne the brunt of the instability in Somalia.
