LONDON (Somalilandsun) – Ruffians have created a fake Twitter account in the name of the Somaliland Foreign minister and have posted false information about the health of the president of Somaliland.

The posts published on Facebook claim that the tweets of the FM say that the president has poor health and is travelling to the United Kingdom to have operation in a London hospital.

Ambassador Ali Adam Awale contacted the Minister of Foreign Affairs , Mr. M Bihi who confirmed that he does have a twitter account and that all that is published in his name on Facebook and twitter are unfounded.
It is sad that some people have taken the political struggle in the country to the level of forgery , insults and defamation of the leaders of the country. While freedom of press is a right for all Somalilanders , slander and character assassination of politicians is a crime in all democratic countries.
