SNA commanders accused of fraud, corruption

The leading commanders of Somali National Army (SNA) are accused of corruption over the payment of the serving soldiers who are fighting against Al Qaeda-linked Al shabaab fighters.

A senior Somali military officer who spoke on condition of anonymity told Radio Shabelle that the SNA commanders have embezzled the allowances of the federal government troops.

The officer’s statement comes a day after a soldier has killed the deputy chief of Somalia’s presidential guards Col Abdi Abdulle Qoor-gaab at Villa Somalia over payment dispute.

Somali troops had been battling Al shabaab for 8 years, as they are unpaid and the officers are blamed for corruption of the money donated by EU and the international community.
