    The president of Somalia’s northeastern region, Puntland fired many officials in his government after a lengthy corruption and fraud investigation. Fired officials could not prove how a large amount of money missing from government tax and public services accounts was used. The amount of the missing money was not disclosed and no criminal charges were laid so far.

    A reliable source told SomaliNet that most revenue from Bosaso airport never reached government accounts and the airport workers from cashiers to the head of the airport knew about the mismanagement. It is not only stolen money but people with connections could use the airport without paying fees or taxes. The source also said other branches of the government are now under investigation and everyone is nervous about it. “Before Mr. Adde came to power, people who had access to money could get rich easily. Now, they are forced to live off their salaries alone.” Said the source.

    The new Puntland President Mr. Mohamud Muse, as known as Adde is very strict and doesn’t shy away from firing corrupt officials. He lost some close friends due to his stand on corruption and government accountability.
    There, corrupt officials.

    That statement says corrupt officials are being fired, therefore something is being done about it. How is China to know whether or not that report is biased?

    If anything it's biased towards the President, does Sierra Leone think the reality of the situation could be much worse?

    We cannot stop droughts (indeed the Uk is believed to be heading towards a drought) but the UAE believes that what happens next is crucial. The UAE believes that countries should make a consorted effort to help those in need and at the moment, the UAE only sees this happening through the giving of aid.

    The representative for Egypt would like to point out that Puntland views itself as an entirely seperate entity to Somalia and Somaliland, while being recognised by neither. Egypt would describe the current Somali government as more incompetant than corrupt. Although in all fairness, the government is still based in Kenya due to the safety issues within Somalia itself.
