Daadab MP Farah Maalim

Daadab Member of Parliament Farah Maalim has responded to a video of him allegedly sharing how he would have dealt with Gen Z protestors.

Speaking in an interview on KTN, Maalim stated the video is edited.

"It's all editing, cutting and pasting, taking a word from here, another one from here and putting it together. There is a lot of nonsense there. It's Somalis basically who would do that because I weighed in on their politics. It's not the true picture," he said.

In the undated video which has since gone viral, Maalim, while speaking in the Somali dialect, allegedly said that if he were the President of Kenya he would have "slaughtered" 5,000 young protesters every day.

He allegedly claimed that the young people who took the streets were from wealthy backgrounds and were dropped off in the capital with the sole purpose of causing mayhem.

"This was an attempted coup, a clear attempted coup. Children of wealthy business owners, wealthy parents, and kids raised on ill-gotten wealth, 80% from one tribe were dropped off in downtown and told to riot and take over State House and Parliament buildings," he said.

In the alleged video that he has now denounced, Maalim noted that if he reigned over the nation he would have wiped them out in their thousands.

"God forbid if I was president I would have slaughtered them, 5,000 of them daily. Serious, there is no two ways about it," he said. Maalim has claimed that the video has been doctored and is misinforming.
