Somalia: Lawmakers Planning to Unseat Hirshabelle State President

A section of the regional parliament of HirShabelle state was reported to have begun meetings on a no-confidence motion against the current president, Mohamed Abdi Waare.

The talks are underway in the state's Interim capital, Jowhar with reports that the MPs are trying to table the impeachment motion after singing the needed number of signatures.

The regional legislators accused President Waare of incompetence and poor leadership as he is in office less than a year. The state presidential palace is yet to comment on the motion.

The Federal Member state was founded in late 2016 as part of the Federalism in the country and since then it got two presidents elected in Jowhar by the current lawmakers.

Somali Federal Government is said to be working on a mission to de-escalate the political tension in Jowhar city, in a bid to avert turmoil as the nation is on the path to recovery.
