Mohamed "Dheere" Omar, an ex-warlord, told reporters that the government's collapse came after he was fired by Prime Minister Nur "Adde" Hassan Hussein last month. Mohamed Dheere, ex-Mogadishu mayor, "The government has failed on security because unworthy people have been appointed as leaders," he said, without giving any specific names.
The ex-mayor accused Prime Minister Nur Adde of having links to al Shabaab insurgents, reiterating accusations he made earlier this month.
"The public knows that [Prime Minister] Nur Adde and al Shabaab have close ties," he said, while alleging that the Prime Minister's airplane was not attacked with mortars as it landed recently. Mohamed Dheere declared that he has "high hopes" to be elected as the governor of Banadir region, who automatically becomes Mogadishu's mayor.
"I am ready for negotiations and power-sharing with everyone…but al Shabaab is a terrorist organization that is against peace," said Mohamed Dheere, who is known as a hawkish politician backed by ruthless militias. Prime Minister Nur Adde has not responded to the ex-mayor' s allegations, but the Prime Minister sacked Mohamed Dheere after accusing him of failing on security matters and misusing tax funds.

UN agencies began fleeing parts of Somali provinces after the al-Shabaab decision to ban CARE and IMC agencies. The spokesman for Ash-shabaab Shaykh Mokhtaar Roobow ‘Ali (Abo mansoor) stated few days ago, that CARE, IMC and all American agencies can not operate on the entire provinces under mujaahideen control. Reason being is, that it has been confirmed CARE was directly involved in the killing of Moallim Adam Haashi Ayrow (may Allah have mercy upon him) by USA. On the other hand IMC was found out to be busy on a plan to assassinate Shaykh Abo Mansoor (may Allah preserve him). UN agencies which number more than 20 agencies which is a mix of Christian missionaries and spies, are based in all of the countrys’ provinces under the guise of handing out wheat and porridge.
