This is yet another attempt by Mogadishu to find a wedge issue between Somaliland and Somalia.
Ethiopia has an historic diplomatic and security ties with Somaliland and eve since president Farmajo’s inauguration, his mission has been to get the neighbouring countries on his governments side.
What better way to do that than appoint a former Puntland Vice-president and a politician that hails from the disputed Sool region.
