The Prime Minister of the Federal Republic of Somalia, Mohamed Hussein Roble, and a delegation led by him today left for Balad, Middle Shabelle region.
Roble was accompanied by HirShabelle state president Ali Abdullahi Hussein (Gudlawe), cabinet ministers and military officials, and was warmly welcomed by the community and administration of Middle Shabelle.
The Prime Minister will monitor the security and living conditions in Balad and surrounding areas.
Roble and his delegation also inspected the construction of the long road connecting Mogadishu and Jowhar, the regional capital of HirShabelle.
Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble will also meet with intellectuals and various sections of the community in Balad.
Security has been beefed up, with more troops deployed in and around the city to ensure the safety of the prime minister’s delegation.
It is Roble’s first visit to Balad, since he was appointed prime minister of the Somali government.
However, Prime Minister Roble’s trip to Balad came as a surprise to many, as the city is vulnerable to attacks by al-Shabaab forces.
