Turkey Never Sent Kenyan Ambassador Home Over Aydin's Arrest, The Information Was False


The rumour that Kenya's ambassador to Turkey had been asked to leave the country, which had been circulating on social media, has been debunked.

Following the arrest of Turkish national Harun Aydin, who fled the country on August 9th, a post on the social media site WhatsApp claimed that the Kenyan ambassador to Turkey had been ordered home by the Turkish government. After the Turkish national departed the country, the post was widely disseminated.


On his way back from Kampala, Aydin was apprehended by the Kenyan government on August 7th. He is said to be a suspect in the financing of terrorism.

Aydin Harun became popular after it was revealed that he was to travel to Uganda with Kenya's Deputy President, Dr William Rutto before his ultimate aborted trip to the nearby country.

Lieutenant Johnson Mogoa Ondieki is still the chief of the Kenyan mission, according to new reports based on research.
