Storyline:National News, World

The regional Ministry of Reconciliation Galmudug State petitioned to exercise peace in Herale location.

Galmudug state has called on the moderate Islamist group Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama’ah to observe peace following tension in the past week.

Reconciliation Minister Osman Mohamed Ali told the group to abide by the law and maintain peace in the region. The minister’s remarks come barely a week after locals took up arms to in what is said to have been a revenge mission after Ahsuna was accused of attacking the local community.

There were no incidents of clashes however but the Herale commissioner in Galmudug said last week there was tension between the group and the local community.

On the other hand, the local traditional elders and members from Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama’ah are conducting a peace meeting to facilitate the return of the local people to the location since many families left due to fear of a break out of conflict.

Galmudug government and the federal government have been pursuing talks with Alhusuna which had vowed not to recognise the regional administration since its formation in 2014.
