“The business people who invest their wealth in the land owned by the government without going through the law, if this government does not exist, it will not exist forever, but they may face a lot of losses,” he added.

He also underlined that the laws are not in place, and there is no proper process for the government lands that have been sold, as he said.

“When talking about land that belongs to the government, nothing is being built on it that is not in the interest of the public, and it is expected that the land to be sold should go through a legal process,” he continued.

This statement comes as the federal government has been widely criticized for its decision to close the School Bluesiya Cemetery in Mogadishu, which has had a great impact on the families of those buried there.
