"They do not deal with you directly. In most times they use Somali brokers in their corrupt dealings" Mohamed Ahmed an importer claimed.
 
Somalia government fight against corruption was taken to the country's largest and most profitable port last week with the arrest of Mogadishu Port Tax Authority boss Ali Ahmed Samow and six other officials.
