The general situation in the coastal town of kismayo district remains unstable. After detonated remote control under buried twin bomb blasted out heavily in DIRISOONKA LEEGADA few meters from Somali star, claiming 1 soldier and half dozen (6)Armed forces sustained injuries, however it isn’t the first time such shocking incident occurs, the exact reason behind this isn’t so far comprehensible, newly nominated criminal investigation team in the region carried out field investigations through which they were able to identify some of the prime suspects, as quoted reliable sources from security officials who spoke enormity, henceforth this come after time of regional official review of the Somali federal government as well a couple of UN agencies were doing broad survey of humanitarian situation, food and security in the entire region. Lower jubba was affected by drought disasters for decade that caused displacement, high rate of mortality/ mobility due to food insecurity and the social-economic status completely fall to zero which needs urgent humanitarian intervention, we have no doubt that starvation shall wipeout lower jubba population, the poor situation has been degenerated by the already downhill situation. Prices of basic food items highly sky rocked and other business transactions, aren’t like prior due to the inflation of the Somali shilling against US dollars Mostly the economics of Lower jubba depends on 81% livestock, due to drought that effected the entire regions the number of animals for sale decreased since then, the number of schooling going children become less ever since, failure to pay school –fees.
Meanwhile the main roads and intersection off the coastal town (kismayo) is closed today, after some of the armed forces of the federal government put roadblock of the corridor
to the sea port town of kismayo and claimed that they were not paid their Salaries since last month, due to that resort checkpoints the business transaction and local transport minibuses (Motatus) have totally break in proceedings since then, it is a first time such bad incidents occur, However, traditional chiefs, prominent leader’s, religious leaders as well a short term local authority are sorting out the matter.
