According to Raxanreeb reporter, the weekly cabinet gathering is focusing several main agendas including discussion on the country’s security situation and fast tracking government services delivery to the citizens.
Shortly before the Thursday cabinet meeting, Premier Khaire visited the seaport where he inspected the function of the harbor currently managed by the Jubbaland administration.
