PM Khaire 1 Year Anniversary Event Cancelled Over Current Political Crisis

An event to mark Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire's one year in office has been cancelled, Radio Dalsan has learnt. Radio Dalsan reporter visited the venue of the event scheduled for Sunday and confirmed the cancellation. All the preparations at the Sahal Hall in Mogadishu had been concluded in the premises that can hold up to four thousand guests. A source close to Villa Somalia has told Radio Dalsan that President Farmaajo had called for the cancellation of the event "due to the current tension in the country". Farmaajo was scheduled to leave for Doha Qatar on Sunday but postponed the trip to mediate the current political crisis pitting Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire and Speaker of the Lower House Mohamed Osman Jawari. Jawari accuses the PM of masterminding a vote of no confidence against him. MPs affiliated to the PM accuse Jawari of being an impediment to Parliament procedures. Khaire was appointed Prime Minister in February 2017 and confirmed on March 1.
