Kismayo residents protest against Somali Federal President Farmajo

Residents of Kismayo have held Anti-Somali President Farmajo demonstration as tension between the two centers of power escalates. The residents were protesting against the recent government decision to reroute all flights to and from Kismayo through Mogadishu. The relationship between Kismayo and Mogadishu have hit rock bottom ever since the regional administration held elections, which saw Sheikh Ahmed Islam Madobe elected for a third term of presidency.

Mogadishu said they would not recognize the outcome of the elections due to anomalies.

Weak Somali Federal Government in Mogadishu dismissed his election as a nullity

Why Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmaajo is busy dismantling the Federal States leadership to install his allies, and Marehan sub-clans when, in reality he will not himself retain his seat come 2020. Going by past Somalis voting patterns, no President has ever retained power. Why destroy what took the Somalis years to build?
