A relative of former Deputy Speaker of National Assembly Farah Maalim was on Tuesday charged with being in the country illegally and obtaining a Kenyan national identity card by false pretense.

The accused, Ibrahim Abdi Farah, who appeared before Milimani Chief Magistrate, Daniel Ogembo, was charged with three counts of illegally obtaining an ID number 32355215 in Garissa County.

In the third count, the accused was charged with the offence of being at the Kenya Defence Forces Recruitment Training School in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County illegally on May 15, this year.
