Gabiley, Somaliland, February 9, 2013 (SL Times) – A member of Somalia’s parliament, Mr Jama Ahmed Muhammad was arrested in Gabiley by Somaliland’s police.
Somaliland’s law considers it a crime for individuals who are originally from Somaliland to hold a position in Somalia’s government.
It is not clear why Jama Ahmed Muhammad came back to Somaliland since he knew he had committed a crime against Somaliland.
Somalia’s government is full of people who join it because they see it as an easy way to collect a monthly salary paid by the European Union while doing nothing, despite the risk of being killed by al-Shabaab.
