Somalia Politicians Who Are Currently Outside Of The Ruling Circle Are Set To Gather Up In Nairobi, Kenya

Heavyweight members of former opposition candidates are set to hold a political gather up in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, in a bid to deliberate the current political situation in Somalia.

The meeting will bring together former Prime Ministers of Somalia, former lawmakers, and other political magnates who are apparently outside the ruling circle of the current government in Somalia.

Among those gathering up in Nairobi are former Prime Minister Hassan Ali Kheire, former two-times PM, Omar Abdirashid, former PM and former President of Puntland State of Somalia, Abdiwali Gaas, and former Presidents of Somalia, Mohamed Farmajo, and Sharif Sh. Ahmed, and Ex-Fed Min, Abdinur Mohamed.


This will be the first time such a high-level political gather-up takes place in or outside of Somalia following the election win of the incumbent Prez of Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud.

Sources inside the Nairobi confirm to Horn Sentinel that the meeting factions will focus mainly on the political developments of Somalia as tensions flare among some Federal Member States and the Federal Government of Somalia following the recent National Consultative meeting in Mogadishu.

However, this meeting comes as Somalia takes up arms against Al-Shabab, an Al-Qaeda affiliate group, and wages deadly military crack targeting the terrorist group.

In recent offensives, the Somali National Army (SNA) with the support of local armed militias liberated more than 300km² in southcentral Somalia, especially the constituencies where these politicians come from.

Sources inside Nairobi further confirm that the meeting faction expresses concern about Prez Hassan’s persistence in fighting Al-Shabab and his continuous pledge to remove Al-Shabab’s menace from Somalia.

For instance, reliable sources confirmed that some of these politicians were using political and clan influence to impede the fight against Al-Shabab to proceed in most parts of southcentral Somalia, especially in HirShabelle and Galmudug States where SNA and the local armed clan militias continue to gain momentum.

Their aim is not to help Al-Shabab to continue ruling in Somalia but to hinder Prez Hassan’s victorious move to ending Al-Shabab in Somalia which they argue will allot the president political leverage that will secure him another term in the office.
