0

Hundreds of Mutinous Somali forces have on Thursday blocked the main streets around the headquarters of the defense Ministry in Mogadishu, to protest over unpaid salaries.

One of the Military soldiers staging the mutiny, told Radio Shabelle over the phone that their commanders have corrupted 4-months salaries paid by the Federal government of Somalia.

The situation has returned to normal, after the soldiers were convinced to arrive back to their barracks by the top commander of Somali National Army (SNA), he added.

President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo who was elected in February 8, has promised to pay the regular salaries of the country’s army soldiers, to restore the law and order in Somalia.
