Somaliland prohibits independent political allegiances on social media

Hargeisa (SD) – Chairman of the Somaliland Civil Service Agency Farhan Haibe said that Somaliland government employees are prohibited in assisting individuals on social media.

The chairman’s comment comes at a time there is a fierce political campaign within Kulmiye’s old guard regarding the party’s leadership recently.

Farhan Adan Haibe, chairman of the Somaliland civil service agency, said that there is a government policy on the the issue, and that serious disciplinary action will be taken against anyone promoting any individual politically on social media.
