"The national organizations tasked with the corruption has turned eyes and ignored the issue early, so we as lawmakers can't do anything right now," Geedi said.

On the other hand, former minister of Galmudug State of Somalia Ahmed Baasto all government offices have the same problem of the corruption.

The comments Somalia is hunting bank teller who stole stealing $530,000 from the central bank of Somalia in Mogadishu, according to the bank's governor Bashir Issa Ali has said.
