Its not the first time, the Minister of Constitution makes such comments. In late May, Mr. Hosh made harsh comments against the country’s judiciary calling them, "corrupt” after the Somalia’s attorney general summoned an individual cited in the media as his close friend, after the country’s journalists’ union - NUSOJ - filed a complaint against that individual.
