Farmajo plots to disrupt key meeting called by PM

MOGADISHU, Somalia - The outgoing Somali president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo whose failed leadership led the country to unprecedented uncertainty plots to disrupt Mogadishu talks.

Keydmedia Somali service learned that Farmajo met with military and intelligence chiefs as well as district police heads to discuss ways to create an issue that can make his goal successful.

Sources say Mogadishu mayor Omar Filish is in bed with Farmajo as he was in attendance of the meeting aimed at derailing the planned consultative talks in Mogadishu on December 27.

The next week's forum was called by PM Roble on Tuesday to find a solution to the opposition's grievances over the election transparency that caused further delays in the voting process. 

Farmajo is unhappy with the way the PM is spearheading the electoral process and has been working on issues that could make his efforts for a free and fair vote in Somalia end in failure.

Roble invited this week all leaders of the five regional states and the mayor of Mogadishu to the capital for a dialogue that many see as the last opportunity to fix the election's irregularities. 

In an attempt to fend off Farmajo's plot, the PM will hold a cabinet meeting on Thursday in which, according to the sources will see the sacking of several ministers, including the defense.

The army chief Gen Odowa Yusuf Rage, a close ally of Farmajo is on the PM's radar and he is likely to be fired after setting up a team to probe claims that the PM was looting public land. 

The political situation in Somalia is worsening by the day as fresh disputes emerge in a critical moment of election in which the country was set to pick new parliament and president in 2021.

The PM and the outgoing president have been at loggerheads over the control of the country and traded accusations for months before reaching an agreement brokered by Qatar in October.
