MOGADISHU (SD) – Banaadir Regional Police commissioner Sadak Omar Hassan has today directed the lower house to end its business ‘until a new parliament is elected’ barely an hour after the house session kicked off in Mogadishu.
In a press conference, Sadak said he took the decision to suspend today’s parliament session to avoid violence and power grab.
“I’m responsible for and in charge of Mogadishu security, all parties, whether government or opposition will be treated equally before the law,” he said.
Sadak John also asked the Prime Minister to ‘exercise his powers’.
“You should not sit around and take dictation, you should be dictating,” he said.
The move by Sadak comes amid sources claimed that the parliament was planning to extend term for president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo whose term ended last February.
