MOGADISHU, Somalia (Horn Observer) Ministry of Posts, Telecom and Technology relocated its Headquarters on Tuesday for the first time in 27 years, officials said.

Deputy Prime Minister, Mahdi Ghuled who attended the opening ceremony asserted this decision would not only improve productivity and accountability, but will also boost the morale of staff.

The minister of Posts said that his Ministry couldn’t execute its annual plan or deliver credible service to the sector and citizens at large if the leadership and staff members are not working in the same place, according to a statement from his ministry

"The relocation of offices back to Ministry HQ and closure of temporary offices show our commitment.” Abdi Ashur Hassan, minister for posts, telecom and technology said in a statement "We believe that no proper work can be accomplished without the direct involvement and interaction of top management and the staff members,” added the minister.


The relocation of the Ministry comes day after the Ministry opened Network Operations Centre (NOC), which aimed  at providing free Internet services to 26 federal government agencies in different parts of the capital Mogadishu. Supported by the World Bank, the NOC provides secure and reliable connection to the Internet and a dedicated service, which will offer 24/7 support, monitoring, and troubleshooting for government entities.

Since 2014, the ministry's leadership, such as the minister, his deputy and the director general, maintained offices at the premises of the Ministry of Information (MoI), while the rest of staff members have been working at the main building in Bondhere.
