Somali president urged to talks with JL leadership
MOGADISHU, Somalia – Somalia’s Jubaland state leadership Ahmed Mohamed Islam ‘Madobe’ has called on Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed to accept talks to put an end their political disagreements.
The announcement was made by Madobe on Saturday during his presidential inauguration that took place in Kismayo, a coastal town lies some 500km south of the capital, Mogadishu.
Madobe urged president Mohamed to come on the negotiation table to make talks with him to dissolve the political tension between Jubaland administration and the government-based in Mogadishu.
Madobe was re-elected for his third term in office in an election as the Federal government announced that it 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.
