Ex President Mohamud To Meet SW's Sharif Amidst Talk Of Motion Against PM Kheyre By Mps

Former Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud is scheduled to meet South West State President Shariff Hassan Adan in Dar Es Salaam Tanzania, Radio Dalsan has established. The agenda of the meeting remains undisclosed to the public but a source has reliably informed Radio Dalsan that Adan will be seeking support from the ex President ahead of a planned introduction of a motion against Premier Hassan Kheyre in Parliament.
