Somaliland President Appoints Eight New Ministers

By AWEYS CADDE 03/14/2012.

The president of Somalia’s breakaway region of Somaliland, Ahmed Mohamed Silanyo, fired seven members of his cabinet on Wednesday, naming eight new ministers to take their place.

A statement issued from the president’s office read:

After the president reminded himself of the ninetieth article of the Somaliland Constitution ("The Powers of the President"), and after he took stock of the importance of ministries to the government, he removed the following ministers from their posts:”

Finance Minister Mohamed Hashi Ilmi
Transport Minister Isma’il Mumin Aar
Labor and Community Minister Ilhan Mohamed Jama
Communication and Postal Minister Dr Ahmed Hashi Odey
Sports, Tradition and Youth Minister Abdi Saciid Fahiye
Deputy Finance Minister Warsame Siciid Abdi
Deputy Foreign Minister Mohamed Yonis Awale.

The statement also read:

After the president realized the talent and knowledge of the following individuals, and having decided that they were suitable for the positions, he named the following to cabinet:

Abaziz Mohamed Samaale (Finance)
Ahmed Abdi Habsade (Transport—former Minister of Information)
Abdi Yusuf Du’ale Bobe (Information)
Ali Sacid Raygal (Sport, Tradition, and Youth)
Mohamud Ahmed bare Garaad (Labor and Community)
Abdulahi Abokar Osman, (Deputy Internal Security)
Osman Abdulai Sahardiid Adani, (State Finance—newly created post)
Mowlid Mohamed Ibrahim, (Deputy Foreign)

The president fired the chairman and the deputy chairman of the labor agency, Mohamud Aw Abdi Ismail and Ahmed Ali Hersi Sulub, respectively. He named Nuh Sheikh Muse Du’ale and Mohamed Omar Abdulahi as their replacements.

Although, the president did not state his reasons for firing the ministers, sources indicate that the president was angered by the "lack of talent" in his cabinet.

This is the third time that Silanyo has reshuffled his cabinet since he was elected in June 2010, but it marks his largest shake up to date.

When fire is cried and danger is neigh,
"God and the firemen" is the people's cry;
But when 'tis out and all things righted,
God is forgotten and the firemen slighted.
