Since the Federal Government announced the ban on Khat, it has been welcomed by many Somalis who have been suffering from it.
It is clear that the ban on Khat in Kenya is a political ploy to cripple Kenya and the Ethiopian government.
Khat is now being smuggled into Somalia in trucks instead of by air.
Ethiopian Khat, which used to be used exclusively in Somaliland, now seems to be used all over Somalia and still comes in an hour cheaper than in Kenya.
It is clear that President Farmajo was implementing the agreement between Ethiopia and Somalia and thus banned KenyanKhqat and allowed it in Ethiopia.
Political observers say Kenya’s ban on khat is a joint venture between the Somali and Ethiopian governments
