Former Vice President Hassan Ise Jama Criticizes Government Assault On The Media

Hargeysa, Somaliland, March 28, 2015 (SL Times) – Former vice President Hassan Ise Jama strongly criticized Somaliland government for its suppression of the independent media. The former vice said this on the occasion of the release of a statement of joint position by the opposition parties. Mr Hassan Ise Jama advised the government to learn from the experience of Siyad Barre who was eventually overthrown because of his oppression of people and suppression of free speech.
The vice president also bemoaned the general condition of the country under the current government and accused it of dereliction of its duty to hold elections on schedule. It is said that a week is a long time in politics but this government had five years to prepare the country for an election and has not done so, and if no elections take place on June 26, 2015, the government will have no legal basis, Mr Jama asserted.
He congratulated the opposition parties on the joint statement which was aimed at strengthening unity, consultation, and peace and to prevent any negative effects on the country’s peace and security due to the government’s failure to handle its responsibilities.
