Saturday April 16, 2022

Mogadishu (HOL) - The Chief of the Somali Correctional Forces, Gen. Mahad Abdirahman Adan, announced said he had resigned on Friday after joining the Lower House of the Parliament.

Gen. Mahad said he had handed over the post to the Deputy Chief and was now preparing to be sworn into office.  

Aden denied that President Farmajo pressured him to refuse to receive the official parliamentary certificate from the federal election commission. 

He did not attend Thursday's official swearing-in ceremony in Mogadishu.

Gen. Mahad was elected to HOP172 after defeating Mohamed Adan Mohamed on March 15 in Baidoa. He is closely linked with South West State President Abdiaziz Mohamed Laftagareen and is considered by many to be a close ally of Somali President Farmajo.
