The government is alleging Suaad Hagi Mohamud, the Canadian woman stranded in Kenya after the Canadian High Commissioner took away her passport, repeatedly contradicted herself in interviews with consular officials, raising suspicions she was an imposter, CBC reported Monday. Federal court documents, filed as part of the government's defence in Ms. Mohamud's lawsuit against them, claim government officials interviewed Ms. Mohamud three times. They say she wasn't clear whether she was a student or where she took classes, couldn't name the lake Toronto sits on, gave the wrong birthdate for her son and couldn't give any details about his birth.
