Crisis 24, a global partner in integrated security risk management organisation is reporting on possible upsurge of protests in Somaliland in the coming weeks.

In a brief on their website (https://crisis24.garda.com/alerts/2022/08/somalia-protest-reported-in-ceerigaabo-somaliland-aug24) Crisis 24 says there were protests in Ceerigabo on Wednesday where protestors barricaded roads by burning tires and boulders.

“A protest is ongoing in Ceerigaabo, Somaliland, Aug. 24 to demand the next Somaliland presidential election be held on Nov. 13 despite President Muse Bihi Abdi’s insistence that votes for political parties must take place first. Protesters have reportedly blocked roads with burning tires and stones. Security forces have been deployed to the area,” Crisis 24 reported.

It added: “Further protests are possible across Somaliland in the coming weeks. A heightened security presence will almost certainly persist throughout Somaliland. Police will likely resort to using force to disperse protesters. Localized traffic and commercial disruptions are likely near all protest sites.”
