The parliament speaker is not sick, says advisor

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The office of the speaker of the Somali parliament has denied reports that Sheikh Aden Madobe is ill and being treated at a hospital in Nairobi, Kenya's capital.

Mohamed Hassan Idris, an adviser to the speaker of parliament, told the local media that Madobe is in Nairobi on a working visit, adding that the reports on social media that he is ill are false.

Idris added that the Lower House speaker will return to the country in the coming days, with the possibility of chairing a meeting slated for next Wednesday in Mogadishu.

The statement comes amid claims that Madobe was poisoned in Kenya and was in critical condition. The speaker was elected in April this year, winning a second chance to lead the Lower House.

Somalia is run by a female MP, Sadia Yasin, who is the first deputy speaker of parliament since the speaker and the president Hassan Sheikh are on now overseas trips to Kenya and the UAE.
