Prime Minister of Somalia H.E Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed chaired last night an extraordinary meeting of his cabinet, Mayor of Mogadishu, district commissioners of Banadir region and security agencies on improving security measures in Mogadishu.

The meeting discussed how to raise safety awareness in local communities in Mogadishu and strengthening relations between the government and local communities in each district of Mogadishu. With local communities, the government and security agencies working together these measures will help protect local people and diminish terrorist activity within the capital.

Each district will have individual ministers who will be responsible for promoting peace and supporting the local community in that district to improve security.

“Those who attacked our presidential place are the enemies of our country, we will not allow them to hide and attack us anymore. This government together with the people of Somalia and the international community will work hand in hand in the fight against these terrorists, ensuring safety and security on our streets and moving to develop our country.” Said Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed.
