Killing of journalists and other important and well-known figures in Somalia has reached an all-time high and it is time for the Somali government to take an action to guarantee the safety of those in target by these blood-thirsty assailants.
It is also the responsibility of the international community to do something about these mysterious assassinations by providing logistics and also the financial means to Somali authorities to achieve results whereby such ugly murders don’t happen again.
According to the alarming rate of the ruthless killings of journalists in Somalia, it is already the time for the International Court of Justice, the Hague, to intervene to bring to justice those blood-thirsty assailants who are behind these constant killings of the Somali journalists and other important figures in the society.
A Somali comedian, Abdi Jeylani Malaq, also known as Marshaale, was recently shot dead in Mogadishu, Somalia.
