  1. The minister’s participation in this conference is uncalled for and it is just a scheme to visit London at tax payer’s expense. There is no benefit for Somaliland to attend this conference. Junior ministry officers are sent to such conferences, if an interest and a benefit in attending the conference exists, wherein the participating officer produces a report about the issues/knowledge/trends/benefits etc.

    See for yourselves, in this link, what the conference entails:

    • What else should he be doing? An ignorant person who is appointed king over a nation of ants and termites who in turn have no clue as to what governance and accountability means.
