Ex-president backs Villa Somalia’s election manipulation

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Himilo Qaran party led by former Somali president Sharif Sheikh Ahmed has officially declared its stance on the ongoing disputed election and the opposition’s upcoming meeting.

Keydmedia Somali services were the first media outlet in Somalia to disclose that Ahmed and former PM Hassan Ali Khaire were part of the opposition’s bid to suspend the election.

The union of the presidential candidates announced they will hold a national consultative conference in Mogadishu after boycotting the ongoing parliamentary polls, citing fraud.

Nearly 12 hours after KON’s report, the leadership of Himilo Qaran party held a closed-door meeting with PM Mohamed Hussein Roble, discussing the acceleration of the election.

The announcement signalled that the ex-leader Ahmed who was chairman of the opposition alliance is now in bed with Villa Somalia and discarded his position on the election.

On November 24, Ahmed issued a statement welcoming the commencement of the Lower House election in Somalia as the majority of his fellow opposition leaders voiced concerns over the lack of transparency in the process.

On November 12, PM Roble met with leaders of the opposition coalition, among them former leaders Hassan Sheikh and Sharif Sheikh Ahmed at his office to discuss the standoff.

Last October, Ahmed faced a massive backlash on social media over his double-card stance as the opposition fights for a free and fair election in the Horn of Africa country.

It’s believed that Fahad Yasin, Qatar’s man in Villa Somalia developed a close relationship with the ex-president who is a powerful voice in the opposition trying to unseat Farmajo.

Yasin manages the funds from Qatar intended to support Farmajo’s re-election. The vote was delayed for three times in this year and still faces challenges, including the political dispute.
