Somali Minister of Information, Posts and Telecommunications Abdulkadir Hussein Mohamed presented an FM radio transmitter to Khatumo's regional administration to help the federal government reach citizens across the nation, the Transitional Federal Government said in a statement on Tuesday (March 27th).

"The aim of the Ministry of Information is to spread the government's message and to assist the burgeoning regional governments in the information and telecommunications field," Mohamed said.

Mohamed spoke at a ceremony at the ministry in Mogadishu attended by President Abdinoor Eli Qaaje of Khatumo's regional government, and other senior officials in his administration.

The ministry has recently provided transmitters to the Puntland and Galmudug regional governments. "The Ministry of Information will shortly open offices in all the regions, so that the national information service reaches all corners of the country," Mohamed said.

Leaders of the Dhulbahante clan formed Kathumo out of the northern regions of Sool, Sanaag and part of Togdheer, which are territories contested between the governments of Somaliland and Puntland. The international community has not recognised it as an independent entity.

    it is not acceptable to kill human beings as though they are common black ants. What is happening in Somalia is cruelty against human beings not Al-Shabaab.
