Somalia: Report On Cabinet Is Untrue, Fabricated

document

The Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) is very sad to see that AllAfrica publishes untrue, fabricated and deliberately misleading information in relation to your recent story entitled "Somalia: President and PM Disagree On New Cabinet List."

The FGS categorically denies that there is disagreement between President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and his new Prime ministers Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed on the new proposed cabinet list which you published.

Dalsan Radio has given you a deliberate and misleading report and we would be very grateful if you can thoroughly investigate this matter.

It is very difficult for us to comment on gossip, rumours and lies. It is the responsibility of AllAfrica editors to ensure that the information you publish is true and factual.

The FGS encourages freedom of expression, however, journalists should be responsible on what they write or publish.

The FGS categorically confirms that the whole information contained in the above report were not true at all, and we believe that the journalist from Dalsan Radio has deliberately misled you, which is a pure fabrication based on gossip and rumours. Therefore, we demand full apologies and a correction to the story.
