The Prime Minister “strongly condemns the odious terrorist attack targeting Government Spokesman, Mr Mohamed Ibrahim Moalimu who sustained injuries today but is in [a] stable condition,” the Somali Prime Minister said Sunday on Twitter. He also wished Moalimu a “quick recovery.”
State media outlet SNTV News reported on Sunday that Moalimu was injured “in a cowardly terrorist suicide attack [that] targeted his car,” in Waaberi, a district of the Banaadir region of Somalia.
The director of communications of the Somali Presidency Abdirashid M. Hashi also tweeted good wishes for Moalimu.
“I have received with shock the news of the heinous attack this morning. I am deeply hurt knowing your sacrifice and input to help improve Government communications following your successful contribution to our Somali Media,” Hashi said on Twitter.
