Government accused of mismanaging public asset
The founder and chairman of Shabelle Media Network Abdimalik Yusuf Mohamud said described 26th October, 2016, the shutdown of the station as “unfortunate and dark day”. for the country.
Shabelle Media Network Abdimalik Yusuf Mohamud said he spent about $50,000 on the repair and renovation of the Radio’s ex-station, but the government has forcefully evicted SMN from the building.
Mr. Mohamud said he is unhappy about the forceful eviction of Radio Shabelle from its former HQ near Mogadishu airport, where former NISA director Abdirahmna Turyare is now housing.
He said Shabelle Media Network (SMN) had been operating in the building under a legal permission from the Ministery of Air & Land Transport of former Somalia’s transitional government.
