Regional Leaders Decry Political Rift In Somalia

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Regional leaders in Somalia have called for the President, Mohamed “Farmajo” and Prime Minister Mohammed Roble to end a feud that risks plunging the country into further instability.

They said ”much-delayed indirect elections must be held as soon as possible.”

On Thursday, President Mohamed Abdullahi “Farmajo” suspended the executive powers of Prime Minister, a move rejected by him.

The rift between the two men escalated following the disappearance of a female intelligence agent.

Tensions are increasing between different factions of Somalia’s security services and there are fears of a possible eruption of political violence.
