MOGADISHU (SD) -Former Somali President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed has spoken out about the security situations in the country, particularly the attack on Halane camp and the bombings In Beledweyne that killed lawmaker Amina and many others.
Sheikh Sharif stated that the security in the country is deteriorating, noting that within hours there had been heavy casualties In Mogadishu, particularly the Halane camp attack and the bombing that shook Beledweyne.
The former President said that AL-Shabab was behind the attack that killed lawmaker Amina Mohamed Abdi and other civilians that died in the explosion, but he refused to mention whether the bombing was politically motivated. He said that the country is in the midst of an election and the security is deteriorating, pointing out that as the election progresses the security situation in the country would deteriorate and the hostiles will take advantage of it.
Sheikh Sharif called on the election authorities to work on expediting the election to fill the void left by political and security solutions. He stated that the election of both houses of the parliament members in the country was not as expected, noting that what happened could not be called an election, and called for improvements for the rest of the election.
Sheikh Sharif’s statement comes at a time when many politicians are skeptical that the assassination of MP Amina and the attack on Halane camp are politically motivated and are intended to disrupt the final stages of the election.
