MOGADISHU (SD) – Gedo Regional Reconciliation Commission has handed over their final report to Somali prime minister, Mohamed Hussein Roble barely two weeks after the commission travelled to Gedo region.
Gedo Reconciliation Commission comprising cabinet ministers from four regional governments including Puntland, Southwest, Galmudug and HirShabelle states was appointed by PM Roble two months ago.
The commission is tasked with creating a secure and political environment where a free and fair election can be held for the Garbaharey district leadership.
PM Roble said Jubaland leader Ahmed Madobe will appoint administration for Garbaharey,
“I assure the people of Somalia that today all that remains is for President Ahmed Madobe to issue a decree to the Garbaharey district administration which has been submitted to me [with the names], and I will submit it to the president,” he said.
The PM received the commission’s final report and recommendations on navigating the contentious Gedo issue, which has remained a thorn in Somalia’s political predicament.
Roble welcomed the report’s contents as a solution to the region’s security, political and social challenges.
A major bone of contention involved the electoral process in Gedo, a Jubaland region, where Madobe accused Farmaajo of “trying to control the vote from a far” has been running for the last two years.
