Ethiopia intervenes in dispute between authorities in Somalia’s Gedo region


MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Ethiopia intervened in a dispute between authorities in western Somalia’s Gedo region, Caasimada Online news website reported on Wednesday, years after troops loyal to former President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo dethroned an administration loyal to Jubaland President in the region.

Ethiopian officials mediated an end to long-standing differences between regional governor Ahmed Bulle Gared and spy chief Bakal Koke, who have been tussling over sharing revenue from road taxations in the region.

In a ceremony held in Dolow on Wednesday, both officials promised to work together and end an internal strife hampering the administration’s ability to deliver essential services to residents in the region.
