The president of Somaliland
Mr. Aden Ahmed Warsame
Former minister
Ministry of Council Coordination, Research and Technology
Subject: Dismissal
Sir, After consequent complaints pertaining to your lackluster performance of duties I appointed you for, and in lieu of public office being in essence public to be held by any citizen deemed capable,
I hereby dismiss you from you duties and post as the Somaliland minister of Council Coordination, Research and Technology
Presidential decree #JSL/M/XILQ/249/1-2544/062014 brings the number of recently sacked ministers to two following a similar one last month, May that saw the exit of indefatigable and charismatic Dr Omar from the commerce and international investment portfolio.
While reasons leading to the current sacking are succinct those behind that of Dr Mohamed Abdilahi Omar, a known die-hard Silanyo supporter and trusted lieutenant remain a mystery.
