Opposition Parties are Fueling Discord –DUHUL


Hargeisa (THT) The state has accused the opposition par ties of fueling breach of public order in Gebiley region. Speaking in the aftermath of a chaotic public riots in the town on Friday, the Presidential spokesman Mr. Ahmed Suleiman Duhul said that it was mainly the mechanizations of

the  both  opposition  parties  UCID and Wadani to cause chaotic situations in the province.

Mr. Duhul who was at the town, told our  sister  paper  Dawan  over  the phone, “the government is not happy with the situation of  the  incidence that  erupted in  the  riots”,  he  said

while lambasting the opposition. “We are saddened by the casualties and loss of property that  happened”. The spokesman said that the situation in the town was  under control

and that the  populace  had at last calmed down by the evening of the fateful day. The riots were prompted by the slaying of two military commanding officers of Qorilugud  base.  Both the OC and his deputy were murdered last week  by a non-commissioned officer who has since fled. Mr.  Duhul  was  particularly  cross with UCID presidential aspirant Mr. Jamal Ali Hussein “It is quite shocking  to  see  a  presidential  aspirant going  public  to  sow seeds of  discord to render the public asunder”,

and  added, “He lied when he  said that the assailant was aided by being supplied with a vehicle to bolt”.

Mr. Duhul made it clear that the slain officers were servants of their government  and  did  not  represent clans. He said that the state had mourned their deaths and communicated to their respected families as per protocols. “It is the state which lost”, he said, elaborating  that,  the  late  officers were dearer to their state than they were to Mr. Jamal. Mr.  Duhul decried seeing  Wadani officials  addressing  the  rioters, deeming them as mobilizers. “I’m telling that  party that they  will never triumph in causing chaos here in Gebiley or in the country at large”, innuending the annotations that they

had no grassroots support. He warned them to stop engineering and peddling lies. Mr. Jamal has yet to substantiate his claims. The  state  has  promised  to  hunt down the culprit wherever he goes.
