Corruption allegations emerge after Galmudug election

A corruption scandal has emerged few days after the election of Galmudug regional state president.

Some members of parliament from the new regional state administration have been accused of double dealing in which they were paid by multiple presidential candidates for voting.

According to sources, some members of regional state parliament are now in trouble after they were forced to pay back the money they received from some candidates in exchange of votes.

Sources say members received cash from more than one candidate for voting but their trick was short lived since they cannot vote more than once.

Former Somali interior minister Abdikarim Hussein Guled was elected as the president of the regional state on 4th July elections in Cadado defeating his close contender and former Intelligence chief Ahmed Maalim Fiqi.

Somali government, UN and AU has welcomed the election of the new Somali regional administration.
