Nairobi, Kenya (tf.sf) - The Somali treasury is missing a whooping USD300 million following revelations from the office of the Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi (Farmaajo) which indicated high level corruption within the interim institutions of the beleaguered Transitional Federal Government of Somalia.

An official at the office of Prime Minister Farmaajo said the missing millions of dollars are part of finances acquired by the interim government during 2009-2010 fiscal year, much of which were unaccounted for by Somalia’s the ministry of finance.
Abdirizack Haaji who is the head of finances at the office of the premier revealed how the Somali government has lost huge sums of money that it received as grants as well as revenues from Mogadishu airport and port.
The official indicated that most of the money was received by the Central Bank of Somalia following agreements with several governments including the USA, China, Libya, Rwanda, Oman, UAE and Sudan.
Speaking to the BBC Somali service the official added that the Somali government acquired more than USD311 million during the said period, however the government treasury could not account for the public finances expect only for a meager USD33million.
According to the official, in 2009 the Somali treasury collected as revenues about 11,529,000USD from the port of Mogadishu but the government treasurey could account for some six million dollars as port revenues.
The official said the amount of money missing so far and which the treasury is yet to account for gives a huge discrepancy that will have a profound impact to Somalia’s moribund economy.
The Somali treasury will have to explain where does the money went, a financial expert who sought anonymity told Hiiraan Online late on Sunday, as top officials of the TFG are yet to give statements over the state of the public finances.
The current revelations indicates a high profile corruption within the interim institutions as the cash-strapped authority of President Shariif struggles to maintain law and order only in the capital Mogadishu as the government fails to provide essential services to the troubled civilians.
It is not yet known why this government official has decided to blow the whistle at this point in time. Over the past few years, there has been widespread allegation of grand corruption within the interim institutions.
In recent years Somalia remained rooted to the bottom of the global corruption index. The country lacked an effective central government since 1991 when President Siad Barre was thrown out of power by a popular uprising.
The 2010 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) from a Berlin-based watchdog rated Somalia, with a score of 1.1 out of 10, as the world’s most corrupt nation.

The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
