Jubaland leader Ahmed Madobe makes new appointments


KISMAYO (SMN) – The leader of Jubaland state Ahmed Madobe has made an appointment as his region is facing the threat of Al-Shabaab, the Al-Qaeda-linked group.


Madobe named Hassan Abdi Guure as the new governor of the Lower Shabelle region and Muse Mohamed Sheikh becomes his deputy, according to a presidential decree.

The president also appointed Brigadier General Abdullahi Abdi Yusuf as the new Jubaland state police boss, deputized by colonel Hussein Ali Hashi.
