Suaad Hagi Mohamud: "My country let me down"

A Kenyan court has agreed to postpone its trial of Suaad Hagi Mohamud for impersonating herself, to allow time for a DNA test to be performed. The new court date, assuming that the matter isn't moot well beforehand, is October 16.

If it weren't for the strain on Mohamud and her 12-year-old son, this could be taken as low comedy. Her lips and her glasses, she was told, don't pass muster.

Two consular officials, present at the short Kenyan court hearing today, refused to speak with a Toronto Star reporter, give their names or even shake hands. Maybe they've seen the writing on the wall.
