That strikes me as a little odd.

A few weeks ago, we had this:

[Suaad Hagi Mohamud] is charged with "unlawfully being" in Kenya, and for attempting to use another person's passport under Kenyan immigration law. She could be jailed or even deported to her native Somalia.

But if the claim was that that was not the real Suaad Hagi Mohamud, what possible sense could it make to threaten this alleged imposter with deportation to "her native Somalia?" If this was an imposter, how could anyone possibly know what country she was a native of? Were people seriously rejecting her Canadian passport, except for the part where it mentioned her country of birth? Did anyone at all not recognize the hilarious illogic of that threat?

That's a great catch.

Well, it's not clear from the article where that bit of information came from. Maybe the fact that she was a native of Somalia was not in dispute. I'm sure she didn't deny it.
