President Hassan Sheikh to pay his first domestic trip to Baidoa

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The new president of Somalia Hassan Sheikh Mohamud is expected to pay his first domestic visit to Baidoa city, the interim seat of Southwest State.

Multiple sources confirmed to the Keydmedia Somali service that Mohamud’s trip is centered on fixing a fresh political row between Villa Somalia and the regional administration.

The president will hold talks with regional leader Abdiaziz Lafta-Garen, a close ally of the ousted tyrant Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo who helped him occupy the top seat at gunpoint.

Mohamud will ask Laf-Garen to set aside the differences and focus on the upcoming election in Southwest, which Villa Somalia wants to go as scheduled and peaceful.

The president’s travel to Baidoa, about 250Kms southwest of Mogadishu comes as members of his inner circle from the Southwest started a plot to impeach Lafta-Garen.

Lafta-Garen’s 4-year term expires in six months with Southwest state politicians in Mogadishu joining hands to unseat him in the December 2022 regional election.

Baidoa witnessed street clashes days before the December vote following the arrest of Mukhtar Robow, the former Al-Shabaab spokesman who was running for president.
