Somali PM, top regional officials mark Eid al-Fitr

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The Prime Minister of Somalia Mohamed Hussein Roble and leaders of the five Federal States celebrated the Eid al-Fitr with the people on Thursday.

The Muslim festival was marked today in the long-chaotic horn of Africa country and the rest of the world after the fasting 30 days of the Holy month of Ramadan.

This year's celebrations were muted due to the coronavirus that killed 753 people and infected 14,486 across Somalia since 2020, shattering the already fragile health system.

“Congratulations to Somali people and the Islamic Ummah in general on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr. I pray to Allah to grant us peace, health, and prosperity,” Roble tweeted.

Muslims around the world mark the annual Eid al-Fitr, to mark the end of Ramadan, the fourth pillar of Islam, which is compulsory to every mature, sane, and able Muslim.

However, this year, same as last year, many people can only celebrate at home with no access to going out because of the imposed lockdowns resulted from the Covid-19 pandemic.
