Prime Minister Roble Jets Back From Jubbaland
Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble has returned from the coastal city of Kismayo and Garbaharey after a four-day visit to Jubaland state. The premier was welcomed at the Aden Adde International Airport by federal legislators and members of parliament. Roble alongside his delegation travelled to Jubaland last week for consultation on elections implementation, reconciliation and strengthening security cooperations. PM Roble said the aim of the trip was to solve the problem associated with the holding of the indirect election in the Gedo region, particularly in Garbaharrey town, the region’s capital. During his visit to the regional state, he also met with traditional elders in Garbaharey, the capital of the Gedo region, to discuss reconciliation issues and the upcoming Parliamentary elections in the district. Roble listened to various elders speak on how to overcome challenges. He called for the strengthening of the role of culture as an integral part of reconciliation and conflict resolution in Garbaharey District. The Gedo regional capital of Garbaharey has been affected by the conflict between the federal government and the federal Member State of Jubaland, with most of the troops from Mogadishu patrolling the area, and the administrative dispute has been dragging on since early 2020.
