Former Somali Prime Minister Kheyre: “Farmajo is mixing fire and gas”2 min read
Former Somali Prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheyre has held a press conference in the Somali capital Mogadishu to discuss the steps taken by former Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo last night and today.
Hassan Ali Kheyre said that the future of the country is in doubt and that the office of the Prime Minister is under attack today.
“There is no doubt that our country is in a state of darkness today. There is no doubt that our future and the future of our children are in imminent danger. ”He said.
Kheyre accused the outgoing president of directing the country into a dark hole 30 years later.
“Unfortunately, it is clear that the outgoing president, who had been appointed as an elder, chose to turn the country into a dark hole after 30 years,” he added.
Kheyre pointed out that the country was in a state of crisis with economic hardship and Al-Shabaab killing civilians and now Farmajo deciding to run the country by his own will.
“It is clear where he is going because he seems to have decided to mix fire and gas, that despite the drought, that terrorists are killing the people, the economy is declining, the institutions of the country are crippled and the Somali people are not voting. They are waiting for the man who was elected and he wants to rule the country with cards, ”he added.
The former prime minister called on the leaders of the regional administrations to take responsibility and come together immediately to counter the threat.
He called on the various branches of the armed forces and their leadership not to get involved in politics and to live up to their oath of allegiance to the people.
Hassan Ali Kheyre’s remarks come amid escalating tensions between prime minister Roble and outgoing president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo, which has led to Farmajo attempting to seize control of the prime minister’s office.
