President Bihi governs a largely peaceful country, were President Farmajo rules a war ravaged country, were he relies on AMISOM troops for security.
But where president Farmajo and his PM show a pioneering leadership style in Somali politics is Power sharing.
Both of Somalia’s leadership, the President and the PM vowed not to award a ministerial appointment to the clans.
While President Bihi appointed four of his top ministries to his clansmen, despite a country riddled with nagging tribal political injustices.
