Abdirashid Janan vows to work towards an inclusive Jubaland


Jubaland security minister, Abdirashid Janan has for the first time spoken to the media after surrendering to the Federal government. VOA Somali interviewed the minister.

Janan has stressed the need for an inclusive Jubaland criticizing his former immediate boss Ahmed Madobe. He said the last election in Kismayo was not free and fair, and there is need for an inclusive Jubaland.

The government sees Janan as an important figure in the fight against Madobe, Kenya’s strongest ally in Somalia, who has been a fierce critic of Farmajo for the past 4 years.

Janan has been detained in Mogadishu in August 2019 for crimes against human rights. He escaped the NISA jail in January 2020 and fled to Kismayo through a sea journey.
