There have been several media reports linking slain Somali-American businessman Bashir Mohamed Mohamud to terrorist groups, after it emerged that he wired millions to Somalia.

His company, Infinity Developers Limited, has come out to refute the claims, saying that Mohamud was undertaking multibillion projects in the country.

According to one of the managers Mr Leonard Makhoha, the company was in the process of servicing a Ksh1.8 billion construction tender involving the construction of a prison facility in Somalia.

Among the projects include phase two of the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPs)-funded court and prison complex in Mogadishu (Ksh200 million) and the renovation of SOS Children Village (Ksh130 million).

Before his death, it is reported that Mohamud was awarded a Ksh729m construction tender in Kenya.

Makokha said the firm was already on the ground undertaking the construction of low-income houses in Mukuru slums.

Family lawyer Charles Madowo revealed that the firm had been engaged in a dispute with another construction firm and the matter lodged at the Public Procurement and Appeals board. This dispute was, however, settled out amicably.

Sleuths are investigating transactions of the firm, to see if they are linked to the death of the businessman.
