Somalia: Farmajo's 100 days in office, security still in limbo


Sunday 4th marked President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo’s first 100 days in office in Somalia.

Thousands of people and government officials took part in an organized rally held in Mogadishu’s Banadir Football Stadium to mark President’s 100 days in Villa Somalia.

Addressing thousands of people at the rally, Farmajo spoke about his achievements during his first 100 days in office.

“We are determined to compete with the world; We also want you to compete with other communities in the world.
We want to compete not only with African countries but with European countries in terms of transparency and credibility. We want you to work with us in terms of paying taxes and security, so that we can move forward with the rest of the world,” the president said.

Somali president promised to fight the corruption, bring back stability in the war-ridden country and create jobs to thousands of Somalia youths in the next 4 years.

Since the President was elected early this year, Al-Shabaab carried out the deadliest attack that killed more than 200 people within the first Three months of his stay in office.

Somali President on the other hand has called on Al-Shabaab to come to the negotiating table, and open talks with his government or face eradication within the coming 2 years.

However, Somali Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab dismissed President Mohamed Abdullahi Faramajo’s declaration on the war.
