MOGADISHU, Somalia Jan 29 (Garowe Online) – Ethiopia’s Woyanne’s top military commanders serving in Somalia have dispatched a letter to the country’s interim president, Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed, expressing their dissatisfaction with the policies of new Prime Minister Nur “Adde” Hassan Hussein, confidential sources tell Garowe Online.
The exact contents of the letter have not been independently verified yet, but government sources in Mogadishu and Baidoa privately confirmed the existence of the letter.
Ethiopian Woyanne generals expressed their displeasure with the way Prime Minister Nur Adde is running his new government, said reliable sources with first-hand knowledge of the letter.
The letter was also sent to Ethiopian
Prime Minister dictator Meles Zenawi, President Yusuf’s main backer.
The generals’ central argument in the letter is that the Prime Minister makes decisions without consulting
Ethiopian Woyanne army commanders based in the capital Mogadishu, the sources said.
Prime Minister Nur Adde is “not as expected” and that the army commanders “cannot work with him,” the
Ethiopian Woyanne commanders complained.
Sources close to the Prime Minister confirmed to Garowe Online that he is aware of the letter, but declined further comment concerning its exact contents.
Since his arrival in Mogadishu last week, Prime Minister Nur Adde has refused to meet with top
Ethiopian Woyanne commander Gen. Gabre, according to a Cabinet source who did not wish to be named in print. Ethiopian Prime Minister Dictator Zenawi is largely believed to have personally hand-picked former Prime Minister Ali Mohamed Gedi, who resigned last October under Ethiopian pressure following a serious rift with President Yusuf.
