Governor Osman Orders Vetting of All BRA Employees
The new Governor of Banaadir Abdirahman Omar Osman "Yarisow" has ordered for all employees of the Banaadir Regional Administration to undergo a compulsory vetting as a measure to overhaul the recruitment system. Mr. Osman was speaking at the handing over ceremony held in the Somali capital Mogadishu "We can understand that the public has a lot of concern over the employment mode. We know people who will get the opportunity to come to governor Yarisow will be politicians and the less connected poor people cannot get that opportunity” Osman said in his speech. “Because of that we will promise to employ in a just, transparent, accountable and competitive way. We will also try to subject all employees on an examination and any party who cant perform in it will be disqualified” Osman said. In the well attended ceremony at the BRA headquarters in Mogadishu’s Hamarweyne district the outgoing Governor Thabit Abdi Mohamed called on Osman to take up on the projects he had initiated including the Zoobe Memorial and the welfare of the victims of the October 14 bombing. Osman who is also the Mayor of Mogadishu praised Mohamed for a peaceful handover after he was relieved of his services through a Presidential decree last week.
