Galmudug new state deputy internal minister Mahad Mohamed expressed his frustration over the apathy of Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama to attend yesterday a planned meeting with Galmudug administration.

The meeting was supposed to take place between officials from both sides.

The absence of Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama for peace talks is one of the challenges against the restoration of peace in the region according to state deputy Internal minister Mohamed.

“There were pacifist people and some local Islamic scholars who brought them here saying they are ready for peace and passed our gratitude for this move and told them of our preparation of a meeting place and every time we are ready they are always lagging behind and keep on attacking and destroying things” said Minister Mohamed.

Top agenda of the proposed meeting is expected to focus on the ongoing fight in Herale location for almost 2 months in Galgadud region in Galmudug state allegedly started when Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama fighters attacked the location and some of the local residents took arms to fend off the invasion which led to death, destruction of properties and large exodus of the local people.

The state minister also touched on the several efforts Galmudug administration had put in place on how to initiate talks with Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama but fell on deaf ears.

Galmudug President Ahmed Duale Haf is endeavouring on how his administration will bring on board Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama said minister Mohamed.

Goobjoog News attempted to contact with Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama but remained reserved to respond to this report.
