Returnees from abroad complain of insecurity in Mogadishu


Over 50 Somali people from Somali communities abroad who have been away for the past 10 years and returned recently, have expressed their concern over the increasing insecurity in Mogadishu.

Hasan Shaykh Ahmad Ade, gives the details: [Ade] At a meeting they held in Mogadishu, the Somali communities from Europe and America said they were very concerned about the senseless killings and clashes that are on the rise in Mogadishu city.

The nostalgia we had for our country and foreign cultures were the main reason for us and our children returning to Somalia, said Abdi Ali Magan who spoke on behalf of the community.

He added that poor security was forcing them to stay with their children in small hotels in Mogadishu... Other members who also spoke at the meeting said the establishment of the Transitional National Government [TNG] had convinced many [Somali] people abroad to pack their luggage and return home to participate in reconstructing and developing their country.

They appealed to Mogadishu residents to foster security and support the TNG in establishing peace in the country.
