Is DONALD TRUMP planning to relocate the U.S Embassy from Kenya to war-torn Somalia? The Embassy finally speaks

Saturday November 24, 2018-U.S President, Donald Trump, has denied allegations that he plans to move the US Embassy to the war-torn Somalia.

In a statement, Trump, through his Embassy in Kenya, made the clarifications after sections of the media reported that the U.S Mission to Somalia located at the U.S Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya would be moved to Mogadishu in Somalia.
U.S Ambassador to Somalia, Donald Yamamoto, was on Friday quoted by a Voice of America (VOA), journalist to have implied that the move could take place before the end of the year.
However, United States Mission to Somalia in a statement refuted the reports, noting that Yamamoto was misquoted by the VOA journalist.

“Ambassador Yamamoto was interviewed by VOA journalist Sahra Abdi Ahmed.”

“Her tweet, the U.S Embassy in Nairobi would move to Somalia as early as December, does not accurately reflect what was stated in the Interview,” the statement reads in part.
