Somalia: Sanbololshe to Be Nominated an Ambassador
Credible sources say the former NISA Director Abdullahi Mohamed Ali aka Sanbololshe will soon be nominated the new ambassador of Somalia to Kenya as he will replace the current ambassador there Mohamed Ali America.
Sanboloshe was dismissed by the cabinet barely a couple of months ago and the president assented his dismissal. The dismissal was caused by a controversial disarmament carried out by the security forces under his directive together with government media censorship carried out by the police who arrested some journalists and closed down media outlets. Earlier, President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and PDP party of which both the president and Sanboloshe are members campaigned for Sanboloshe to become the new chair of Banadir Regional Administration but that didn't succeed as traditional elders, politicians and members of civil society organizations especially from Mudulood Community opposed it.
Dalsan Radio found out that after a lengthy consultation PDP party members agreed upon Mr. Sanbololshe to be nominated as the new ambassador to Kenya. President Hassan is due to appoint him for the said post once he is back from Mecca where he just performed hajj.
It is however not clear whether the cabinet will give their accession or not.
