Govt officials accused of failing Mogadishu security
Former Hodon district commissioner Abdi Salad has accused the top government officials of failing to secure Mogadishu, the country’s capital and protect the increasing deadly Al Shabaab attacks.
Speaking in an interview with Radio Shabelle, Mr Salad said the term-ended leaders of the government are busy with the elections and spending their time in the campaigns instead of the national security.
“All the federal government leaders whose mandate has expired are hectic of the election campaigns, while Al Shabaab militants keep carrying out attacks and killing in Mogadishu,” he added.
Former Hodon district commissioner’s comments came as Mogadishu has seen series of car bombs and killings on security force members and public servants by Al Shabaab militants.
Somali caretaker president Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has asked AMISOM troops to help the Somali national army secure the country during the election which is scheduled in Nov 30, 2016.
