MOGADISHU (Horn Observer) Somalia President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has on Sunday named Eng. Abdirahman Omar Osman (Eng. Yarisow) as the Governor of Banadir region and Mayor of Mogadishu replacing former Mogadishu Mayor Thabit Abdi Mohamed and his deputies.


The appointment came after the relationship of former Mogadishu Mayor Thabit Abdi Mohamed with Villa Somalia soared prompting Thabit to organize an overnight conference that he said was elected by representatives of Banadir region for a 2 year term.


The Former Mayor of Mogadishu has at some points been speaking about the status of Mogadishu, which is a constitutional act and can only be decided once the constitutional is completed.

Somali parliament speakers on Saturday issued a statement saying that Mogadishu status has been defined in the constitution and any change to that status should be addressed by the constitution.


Somali government accuses the former Mayor of Mogadishu Thabit on corruption practices, specically selling government lands and properties during his term in office. Somalia Presidency issued a decree reiterating that from 8 February 2017, all government lands sold were null and void.

Eng. Abdirahman Omar Osman Yarisow is the current Minister of Information and has held various position from the government including minister of finance.

Many analysts believe that Eng. Yarisow could be the perfect match for being selected as the Mayor of Mogadishu and could make significant changes to the city.
