Former President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud has accused the current government of doing little to reform the judicial system and build public confidence among citizens on the courts noting more people are now seeking settlements in Al-Shabaab courts.
President Mohamud who is also a presidential candidate said he made significant strides including writing the law to form the Judicial Service Commission and increasing public confidence in the judicial system during his tenure.
“Right now many people including government officials, traders and civilians go to Torotorow to seek justice,” Mohamud said. The militant group Al-Shabaab presides over cases in its courts in Torotorow in Lower Shabelle region.
The former head of state was speaking during a public forum in Mogadishu Saturday night.
