LIVE THREAD: on Current Political Development in #Somalia. Here is my analysis on what's happening now at the federal parliament. First some background. Deputy speaker Muudey dismissed the Parliamentary Oversight Committee last week for publishing a damning report against MoF
The report accused corruption & misappropriation for Minister of Finance Mr. Beyle. The Admin reacted by bribing several MP's in the Committee with $10k each, in addition to dismissing the committee while Speaker Mursal was away for a personal leave in Turkey.
Upon returning, Mursal wasn't happy with the infringement of the Admin in the Parliament. So, he wrote a letter yesterday reinstating the Committee & calling Muudey's move not only baseless but out of the legal bounds.

Mr. RONDOS was implicated in corruption scandal for his role as advisor to former socialist PM of Greek, George Papandreou, in April this year by authorities. This was widely reported by Greek media. #Somalia #Mogadishu
RONDOS' support for Farmajo Administration is credited to the greatest fraudster Mr. Abdisaid M. ALI, the current National Security Advisor to the President. Ali served briefly for EU mission in Somalia as a low-key consultant.
"Alexander Rondos is a citizen of Greece born in 1954 in the Sultanate of Zanzibar (Tanzania). He studied in the UK, was a correspondent for the British magazine West Africa Magazine, and then worked for Catholic Relief Services, an American Catholic NGO." Katehon.com
