I have never funded al-Shabaab – Afewerki

The visiting Eritrean President, who is facing UN sanctions and diplomatic isolation over his alleged role in destabilising the Horn of Africa, yesterday dismissed as untrue accusations that he funds terrorism in the region.

Mr Isaias Afewerki, who ended his three-day visit to Uganda yesterday, was speaking during a press conference at State House, Entebbe. He described al-Shabaab, the terrorist outfit the UN accuses him of supporting as a group unworthy of being discussed.

That was the response he offered to journalists who had asked him to explain his alleged links with al-Shabaab and its operations in Somalia. The visiting head of state, however, said he is ready and committed to ensuring that peace returns to Somalia.
