For President Hassan Sheikh, what happened should be a lesson for him to learn from and a reason to correct things.
When the former leader of Al Shabab Mukhtar Robow warded him a ministerial position, when the ministries are under the leadership of the military, individuals whose history is sure to have been through Al-Shabab, when he gave the most sensitive organizations to men who were working for Al-Shabab, what is the result he can expect?
A painful face-off has affected the reputation and credibility of the country’s security. If the president does not make immediate changes in the country’s security leadership structure, what can be expected is a security failure, which is worse than what happened.
What has happened is security negligence, and if the President does not take appropriate action, it will turn into leadership negligence.
I pray to Allah to have mercy on those who died in that horrible attack, and to give good health to most of the wounded.
