Somalia: Resign or be impeached, lawmakers tell president | The Columbus Dispatch

Somalia: Resign or be impeached, lawmakers tell president | The Columbus Dispatch

More than 100 Somali lawmakers have signed a letter demanding that the president resign for failing to improve security and meet other promises, threatening to impeach him if he does not quit.
The petition, the first of its kind against President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, has enough signatures to force an impeachment debate in parliament. But such a move could be blocked by the high court, which would have to approve it, and more backers would be needed to vote Mohamud out.
The initiative highlights the growing frustration in Somalia at the government’s failure to deliver more tangible change in a nation struggling to rebuild after two decades of war.
