MP: NISA chief responsible for failure of PM-Opposition talks

MOGADISHU, Somalia - A prominent MP Mahad Salad blamed Intelligence head, Fahad Yasin, for the failure of the last round of negotiations between PM Roble and opposition candidates in Mogadishu.

Speaking at a meeting through Clubhouse last night, the lawmaker said Yasin oversaw Roble's meetings with the council of the presidential candidates at Decale Hotel inside the capital’s main airport.

NISA boss, who is the right-hand man of Farmajo was receiving updates about the talks from State Minister for Transport, Abdirahman ‘Dheere’ at the forum and dictating the PM, according to the MP.

“Abdirahman Dheere is politically and ethnically close to the spy chief, Fahad Yasin, and he represented him at the conference, whose messages caused the conference to be disrupted,” said Mahad Salad.

The conferences ended in failure after Fahad Yasin has opposed the opposition's demand for the participation of the stalled electoral dialogue between the outgoing president and regional leaders.

The opposition candidates’ alliance led by former presidents Sheikh Sharif and Hassan Sheikh have accused the prime minister of not having the power to make decisions about resolving electoral tiff.

Somalia is currently in political turmoil as a result of Farmajo's refusal to hold an inclusive election in the country at the end of his tenure on February 8 hand over power smoothly to an elected president.

The failed negotiations, which lasted three days, aimed at addressing concerns by the opposition about the delayed elections in Somalia and denial of their rights to hold peaceful anti-government protests in Mogadishu.
