N&N fight is raging on to squeeze Jubaland Federal Member State from all sides and corners, save Kenya’s side. There are, reportedly, restrictions and sanctions being applied on aviation companies to coordinate with Mogadishu before they fly into Kismayo.
Ahmed Madoobe potential inauguration is also being undermined. Diplomatic pressure, not to recognize the outcome of recent Jubaland election, is one of the tools N&N is utilizing to deny legitimacy to Ahmed Madoobe.
So far, no other Federal Member States, save a divided Puntland Government on the issue of Jubaland election outcome, has come forward to recognize Ahmed Madoobe’s claim of election victory. This is still a developing story.
