Somali lawmakers arrive in Kismayo

MOGADISHU, Somalia – Somali lawmakers from Lower and Upper Houses of the country’s parliament have arrived on Friday in Kismayo town, some 500km south of the capital, Mogadishu.

A Senate delegation led by deputy speaker of the Upper-House, Sen. Abshir Ahmed Bukhari was warmly welcomed at the airport in the port town of Kismayo.

The delegation is scheduled to join other political leaders, who will attend Ahmed Madobe’s regional presidential inauguration.

Madobe was re-elected for his third term in office in an election as Mogadishu –based government announced that they would not accept the outcome of the poll.

The political tension between Jubaland and the Federal Government of Somalia escalated following the re-election of Madobe in August.
