By Asad Cabdullahi Mataan

Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed sends his deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of Veteran MP Mohammed Mohamud Hayd who was killed in Mogadishu today.

“This criminal act only promotes violence, distress and grief in our community. Taking a human life is abhorrent and only affects an innocent family and strikes them with grief. This criminal act will be investigated and justice will be brought forth” The Prime Minister said.

Mohammed Mohamud Hayd was a man who served his country and his people. We condemn this and any other murders especially during the holy month of Ramadhan. Islam does not support the killing of innocents, brothers slaying brothers and criminal acts. Mohammed Mohamud Hayd will be remembered for his unwavering patriotism and devotion to the great nation of Somalia.
