Washington (SD) – US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar spoke for the first time about the political rift between President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo and Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble.
The US Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in a tweet called on the outgoing President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo to vacate the Somali presidency.
“Farmaajo is a year past his mandate. It’s time for him to step aside, and for long overdue elections to proceed as soon as possible.” Ilhan Omar tweeted.
Ilhan Omar, a Somali-American, is a member of the ruling Democratic Party and a co-chair of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Ilhan’s remarks came as the United States announced last night that it would take action against those who pose a threat to peace in Somalia, strongly opposing the former president’s “attempted suspension” of Prime Minister Roble.
It is the strongest statement from Ilhan Omar has ever released about the current political situation in Somalia, and it is a direct demonstration of her opposition to Farmajo’s extension and leadership.
