Mogadishu Mayor Thabit Abdi Send a Rape Victim For Overseas Medical Treatment
Governor of Banadir region who is also the mayor of Mogadishu Mr Thabit Abdi Mohamed has sent a lady named Faiza who was shot by a soldier to get medical treatment out of the country. Faiza was reported to have been attacked by a Puntland state navy soldier who wanted to rape her while she was in Bosaso town but she struggled hard to defend herself from her attacker. On realizing that he can’t succeed in his mission, the soldier who was named as Abdikadir Warsame shot her at the private part leading her to sustain serious injury. She was later moved to Mogadishu for treatment but unfortunately, doctors said that she requires a specialized medical attention that is beyond their level. Mayor Thabit has today made it possible for the lady to get treatment in Turkey and wished her all the best while she was in the company of her mother and father. Mr Thabit said that it was not good for Faiza to be in the country for all this long but said he expects her to be taken to the best hospital and urged the people of Somalia to pray for her. On the other hand, Warsame, the soldier who committed the heinous crime was arrested hiding on the outskirts of Kismayo and transferred to Garowe where he will be tried for a criminal offence.
