Somaliland President Says Mogadishu Residents ‘Hijacked’, Farmajo Serving Illegally


MOGADISHU (Somaliguardian) – Somaliland leader Muse Bihi Abdi has said on Monday that the residents in the Somali capital Mogadishu “have been hijacked” and have no voice as authorities take actions igniting hostilities.

Bihi addressing the parliament of the break-away state, spoke on a number of issues including the region’s upcoming elections, the achievements made on the economy and development during his tenure and the current political crisis in Somalia’s south.

“Residents in Mogadishu have been hijacked; those serving them in decision-making positions take hostile actions dividing the people,” Somaliland president Muse Bihi Abdi said.

“Today, term of the previous government in Mogadishu ended, no new government has been elected and no mandate has been extended, and he [Farmajo] is still serving.”

The leader of the self-proclaimed state of Somaliland boasted about a number of achievements made by his administration during the last 4 years including GDP growth, development on a number of sectors and leading the country to elections scheduled to take place in May.
