“We will reopen all the blocked streets in Mogadishu” Mogadishu mayor says
Mogadishu mayor Yusuf Hussin Jimcale has ordered the streets in Mogadishu which are blocked with huge stones to be unblocked.
Yussuf Hussein Jimale has specifically mentioned increasing roadblocks in the major roads in the capital main road heading to Mogadishu seaport.
Residents of the city believe roadblocks and checkpoints scattered across the capital is obstacle to their daily life activities such as business.
However Somali security agencies that are responsible for the most security barriers and roadblocks have maintained it saying they are for security purpose.
“It is really a big problem to see that the main streets in Mogadishu are blocked with big stones for what those who did it think that the stones will secure their security which is absolutely wrong. Stones cannot secure security and I want the blocked streets to be unblocked with immediate effect.” said Mogadishu mayor.
The former Mogadishu mayor Muungaab has several times made attempts to reopen the closed streets, but has failed to reopen the streets.
