“The guidelines of meeting are not followed exactly as they are and rights of some of the representative of Somali central region clans were violated” he said.
He added “if Somali federal government does not immediately address the complaints about Somali central state formation process, the conference will face blatant impede”
“I don’t see as to why people want beat around the bush, people of these regions are the ones who have the right to form their own regional government, we have to be given the freedom to discuss on our future, we call upon the government to stop misleading people”
