Somalia's parliament administration top official said on Sunday lawmakers has filed a motion with the speaker of parliament to impeach the country’s president, Mohamed Abdullahi.

We have filed an impeachment against the president of the federal republic of Somalia,” Abdikarim H. Abdi Buh said in a statement. The reason why the Somalia lawmakers wanted to impeach their president or on what grounds impeachment motion was filed is not clear for the moment.

According the laws of the country, the impeachment should get two thirds of the Somalia parliament to be successfully carried out and impeach the president. So far many Somalia politicians support the motion of impeaching President Mohamed Abdullahi.


Recently President Mohamed Abdullahi visited Ethiopia and he had a secret deal signed with the Ethiopian and Eritrean leaders in Bahirdar, Amara regional state. What agreements and documents the three leaders signed is unknown, but there are rumors the agreements are to undermine the sovereignty of each country. Some Arab countries are behind the hidden agenda of the three countries agreements and they are pouring money to the leaders to fulfill their goal.

Demonstrations breakout in Mogadishu the capital of Somalia and they are spreading to other towns. On a video we watched on social media the people were tearing photos of President Mohamed Abdullah and Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
