President’s Family Wants To Hand The Port Of Berbera To Foreign Companies

Hargeysa, Somaliland, March 28, 2015 (SL Times) – Haatuf Newspaper cited an article in the Indian ocean Newsletter’s 7/2/15 issue which indicated that the wife of Somaliland’s president Amina Mohamed Jirde and her son-in-law Bashe Awil Haji Omar are in contact with three foreign companies (Dubai World, Abu-Dhabi Ports Company, and the French company Bollore) regarding the possibility of taking over the port of Berbera, and that the presidential family is acting as middlemen in this matter. The report added that the president’s wife and his son-in-law are being assisted in their scheme by other individuals such as the head of Somaliland’s Agency for contracts.
This report is an indication that the foreign press is finally becoming aware of something that is widely known by Somalilanders, namely, the gross corruption in Somaliland’s presidential family, and this is only the tip of the iceberg.
