Former Mogadishu Mayor Thabit mourning faulty CCTV at Mayor office as security loophole

Former Mogadishu Mayor Thabit Abdi Mohamed has asked security heads to come clear on the functionality of CCTV at the meeting hall where a female suicide bomber detonated herself last Wednesday killing seven people.

In a Facebook post on Saturday Mohamed raised the issue over reports that some of the CCTV installed at the Mayor’s office were faulty. Mohamed says there is a lot of anxiety by the public over the security of the Mayor’s office with the emerging information that there may exist security loopholes. He added that while he was in office the CCTV were all functional.

Thabit was replaced by Abdirahman Omar Osman after he was sacked by President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed on January 2018.
