Somalia: Jowhar meeting on the verge of collapse

The inter-regional state formation conference in Jowhar town is on the verge of collapse after the stakeholders and IGAD envoy have failed to reach a consensus on the process.

The elders who have previously agreed to attend the conference in Jowhar accused Somali government and IGAD of breaking promises related to their attendance to the talks.

However, elders are calling on IGAD stop the interference in Jowhar’s conference and siding with some clan elders attending the state formation meeting.

The conference which was opened early this year seeks to form a federal state for Hiiraan and middle Shabelle region was overshadowed by dispute over  power-sharing modality.

Somalia’s government however did not comment the new challenges emerging among the elders and IGAD as it has not disclosed how long the conference will continue.
