Somalia’s President Accused of dividing elders from Somaliland after vote delay


Somalia’s President Mohmed Abdilahi Farmajo has been accused of dividing the traditional leaders from SL, after the crucial vote for candidates vying for Senate seats allocated for SL.

The leader of the Wadajir opposition party Abdirahman Abdishakur on Sunday said President wanted to create chaos in an attempt to derail the ongoing electoral process.

Abdirahman Abdishakur tweeted: ” Farmajo is engaged in dividing the traditional elders from SL who are taking party in the elections. He is not interested in the election. He wants to create chaos so as to derial the election since he does not have any hope in the outcome.

“However, the Somali people and international community should recognize him as the spoiler and unite against him. It is a shame that some elders from Somaliland support Farmajo in instigating chaos and sedition.”

The embattled president held a meeting with some of the traditional elders from Somaliland at his office on Sunday night.

Abdishakur called on high level electoral panel for Somaliland to implement recently agreed procedure to ensure that the election moves forward without further postponement.
