Manifestations of corruption Farmajo government
Somalia has retreated in the indicators of fighting corruption since 2017 AD, and among the manifestations of the decline in the fight against corruption is the entry of President Muhammad Abdullah Farmajo to power with a political program, the most important pillar of which is the fight against corruption prevalent in the state apparatus, but the formed government was not a technocratic government capable of fighting corruption.
The electoral program is just ink on paper, and some behaviors related to corruption have emerged, which are represented in “bribery – embezzlement of public funds – money laundering – illicit gain – abuse of power to achieve personal interests – nepotism in public service.”
Farmajo’s term represents a lack of respect for the country’s constitution, and observers see it as “the rule of the single leader” who occupies all state posts, whether political or military.
Observers also considered that the decision to extend the Somali president and his parliament will have negative economic repercussions on Somalia, which is already suffering from high inflation rates, and will lead to its isolation.
