Hon. Irro was speaking to the press in Burao town where he had gone yesterday evening. The opposition chief also talked about the imprisonment of traditional chieftain King Osman Aw Mohamud Burmadow revealing that his incarceration is politically motivated.
Here are his words “Hon.Suleiman, the Guurti speaker, has worked for this nation for a while and now the time has come for him to retire and hand the mantle of the Upper House of Representative to another person who shall take from where he left. It‘s my opinion and suggestion that the fire brand mullah cum politician Sheikh Adam Mohamud Hirey (Adam Siiro) should be elected to become the next Guurti chairman so that transparency and accountability could become the norm again.
Pertaining the jailing of traditional elder King Osman Aw Mohamud Burmadow Hon.Irro said “I don’t agree with the hasty imprisonment of a traditional leader of King Osman caliber to be treated the way he was treated. He wasn’t given time to defend himself, furthermore his incarceration is politically motivated. The King was not jailed because he attended a traditional coronation ceremony in Puntland. The powers that be locked him because of his outspokenness concerning the chairmanship of the ruling party Kulmiye. King Osman wanted President Musa Bihi to hand over the party baton of leadership to his clan.”
