GAROWE [SMN] – The President of Somalia Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, who has been in Garowe since last Thursday visited Puntland government offices today.
Some of the roads in Garowe city closed and additional security forces were deployed to beef up the security and avert any insecurity incident during the president’s tour.
The President last night attended a dinner held at Puntland presidential palace in Garowe, which brought together 50 guests from Puntland and the Mohamud’s visiting team.
The President’s trip was initially expected to take two days, but it took three days due to the talks with Deni that focused on how to fix strained relations.
A statement from Villa Somalia said that President Hassan Sheikh will meet with the community of Puntland, which has not yet happened.
