PRESS STATEMENT!
Illegal detention of BPRC Deputy chairman
The Banadiri political reformation council (BPRC) is outraged by arbitrary arrest of its deputy chairman Omar Sharif Jeeg, who spent the second night in jail after attending a peaceful demonstration in Hamarweyne district.
Mr. Omar Shariif Jeeg was arrested right after attending a peaceful demonstration, which the BPRC organized in order the Banadiri community express its concerns related to the political marginalization subjected to it in terms of the power-sharing of the upper house and the participation of the High Level partnership conference in Istanbul Turkey.
The deputy chairman was arrested by the National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) branch commander of Hamarweyne District, who claimed to be ordered by the NISA commander of Mogadishu.
“This is awful and very arbitrary arrest subjected to us in order to force us to keep silent and not to express our concerns about our future as community, it is unacceptable act, we condemn it, we are very outraged by the act of the NISA and who ever ordered it and we request the Somalia government and the international community to intervene” said the BPRC chairman Dr. Lutfi Mohamed Omar, who is also on the run after NISA ordered his arrest.
“We are a peaceful community, we just expressed our concern through peaceful demonstration, we want to have the right to express our expression, we are marginalized and now oppressed not to express our concerns” Omar added.
“I didn’t sleep my house, NISA is looking for me and I don’t know why they want arrest me, but I call on the NISA and the ministry for the internal security to stop harassing us because we are unarmed community, we just want to apply our freedom of expression through peaceful and polite manner” He continued.
The arrest of Omar Sharif Jeeg, the outspoken deputy chairman of NISA and the chasing of BPRC chairman started moments after a peaceful demonstration started in Hamarweyne, which hundreds of Banadiri community members chanted against the exclusive power-sharing of the Upper House and the HLPF in Istanbul.
The Banadiri community’s political leadership, BPRC, requests the Somalia government, to intervene the matter and stop its security forces, from carrying out the crackdown against the Banadiri community’s political leaders, who are advocating for the rights of the community through peaceful and polite advocacy.
We request the NISA to free Omar Sharif Jeeg without condition and explain why he was arrested and who ordered the arrest.
We request the international donor community, specially the UN, UK, US, EU, as well as the regional bodies of IGAD, LAS, AU and the governments of Sweden, Italy, Denmark, Norway and Germany, to pressure the Somalia government to release Omar Sharif Jeeg and stop harassing political leaders of the Banadiri community.
Our right to political movement and freedom of expression is a constitutional right, which we want to apply peacefully.

Mogadishu, 19 November- Over 30 Somali Journalists and some selected Editors have begun a three-day training on Humanitarian and Climate Change reporting in Mogadishu today. Somali Independent Media Houses Association (SIMHA) organized the Media Training.

Speaking at the training kick-off in Mogadishu, SIMHA’s Chairman Hassan Ali Geesey said the training would help the Journalist identify and report on Humanitarian stories.

“The media is the vehicle that delivers crucial information to the public. We feel there is a need to train the Journalists and Editors on how to report on the humanitarian crisis the country is witnessing now. It is timely, and we hope this will help shape the opinion and views of Somali people and their international supporters through accurate reporting,” said SIMHA Chairman.

 The media training which is planned to be held in major cities in the regional states in the coming weeks is supported by UNSOM and the office of the Special Envoy for Humanitarian Affairs, Abdirahman Abdishakur Warsame.

 “Without the support of UNSOM and the Office of the Special Envoy, it would not have been possible to implement this training”, Added Mr Hassan Geesay.

While officially opening the training, the Special Envoy on Humanitarian Affairs, Abdirahman Abdishakur Warsame, emphasized on the media’s role in positively highlighting the challenges caused by Climate Change and its impact.

“As Journalists and Editor, today you can support your people suffering from the continuous impact of climate-induced tragedies. You need to take the front seat in highlighting the challenges our people are facing daily, “ said the special envoy.

“You are the vehicle we need to deliver the message, and without you, we will never know the extent of the damage and how much help we need”, added the special envoy. The envoy also warned the Journalists against fake news and its terrible impact.

“As Journalists, you must always strive to get the truth. The responsibility of informing the public by offering accurate information rests on your shoulders. The target is to train over 200. Journalists in the five regional states” said the special envoy.

The group of editors and Journalists who were lucky to have been selected for the training welcomed the opportunity.

 Somalia is currently facing the worst humanitarian crisis following failed rainy seasons. More than 50% of the population needs food aid as the country also inches closer to the declaration of famine.

With this critical step of training media managers and Journalists, the media will have an opportunity to accurately and objectively report on the situation by highlighting the voices of those who are suffering from the impact of the climate-induced tragedies.

SNA Soldiers in liberated Masjid Ali Gadud Receive Supplies Donated by Somali Diaspora in US

Soldiers in the front line fighting to regain their positions in newly liberated Masjid Ali Gadud Town have received new supplies aimed at helping them continue resisting al-Shabab which was removed from the area after 15-year control.

The donations which include camels, food and non-food items were donated by the Somali Diaspora living in the United States.

The Federal Parliament representative for the area, Yusssuf Mohamed Yussuf thanked the Diaspora community for spearheading efforts in supporting the Somali Army and Ma’wisley militia.

The legislature lauded the Somali Army and the government allied militia for undertaking offensive operations aimed at weeding out the network from Somalia.

He said the supplies will help his military respond urgently to the emergencies and support local communities in newly liberated areas.

“This is just the beginning. More support from the Diaspora is coming. This is just from Minnesota more help is coming from our brothers and sisters in the diaspora,” said Mr. Yussuf.

The Governor for the Middle Shabelle Region Ahmed Meyre Makaran led military and other senior officials of the Somali Government in receiving the donation.

The Governor has appealed for help more to respond to the civilian population who are lacking basic human needs like healthcare and education.

“We want to encourage our patriots to rally behind this course aimed at supporting those in the frontlines,”said Governor Meyre Makaran.

“The government and the Somali people have all unanimously decided to liberate themselves from the hands of the militants, a reality that can be achieved if we are all united,” he added.

Masjid Ali Gaduud has been a frontline between Somali Forces who have instituted a Forward Operating Base and al-Shabab which has been controlling the town.

Hundreds of Militants were killed in the operation to flush out the group which has besieged governments in Mogadishu for close to 15 years.

The successful offensive follows recents military advancements by the Somali Army in pursuit of al-Shabab to remove them from parts of central and southern Somalia.

The liberation of the latest Town came just a day after Somalia’s government said the military forced al-Shabab out of 30 villages in clashes this month that killed more than 200 militants.

Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud responded to the deadly siege by announcing a “total war” against the militants.

The Somali Government has issued an urgent plea for international help for wounded victims of devastating car bombings at the weekend that claimed the lives of 100 people.

The attack tests the government’s ability to secure the conflict-weary nation, including the capital of nearly 2.5 million people.

Al-Shabaab fighters have stepped up their attacks in Somalia since Mohamud was elected in May and vowed an “all-out-war” on the Islamists.

Somalia’s president arrives in Egypt to attend COP27 climate summit

President of Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and a delegation he led reached Sharma Sheikh, Egypt, to attend the International Conference of Climate of the world.

The President accompanied by the Somali experts on Climate will attend the COP-27 conference alongside the other leaders of the world.

The Somali government will deliver the changes of the climate that has affected the Somali people and the plans they have to tackle the droughts, famine and floods.

The COP27 presidency is headed by the foreign ministry, which has a pool of experienced negotiators and which foreign diplomats say has far better capacity than other ministries working on climate.

It is hoping to leverage that expertise to help achieve progress in climate negotiations, despite an unpromising backdrop for commitments from major nations or big finance.

“We hope that it will be a watershed moment”, Wael Aboulmagd, a veteran Egyptian diplomat and special representative for COP27, told reporters on Friday, noting that science shows the world lagging behind on every aspect of the fight against climate change.“Everyone is aware of the gravity of the situation, the enormity of the challenge.”

Egypt is presenting itself as a champion of Africa and the Global South, building on a diplomatic campaign to win African backing in a dispute with Ethiopia over a dam on the Blue Nile that Cairo sees as a threat to its water supplies.

It has been pressing for a “just” energy transition that allows poor countries space to develop economically, a boost to cheap climate finance, and addressing compensation demands by vulnerable states for damages from climate-induced extreme weather events.
