Jubaland state cabinet holds emergency meeting in Kismayo

The leader of Jubbaland state of Somalia, Ahmed Madobe has called in an emergency cabinet meeting in Kismayo port city to discuss the current situation in the region.

The meeting comes as protests against Jubbaland were held in several towns in Gedo region of southern Somalia, where residents are calling for reform and regime change.

The interim seat of the state, Kismayo has seen a fierce clash between two groups withing Jubbaland security last weekend which flared up over the arrest of a senior army officer.

Jubbaland, however, is heading to the polling stations next year as the incumbent is dragging his feet to hold a free and credible election, an attempt that has been warned by critics.
