The Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Interior and Commerce were sacked on Thursday by the Somalian Prime Minister Hassan Khaire as the country battles an Islamist insurgency, replacing them with newcomers.
According to a statement issued by the information ministry, Foreign affairs minister Yusuf Omar, interior minister Abdi Juha and the commerce and labour minister Khadra Duale had been relieved of their duties.
The minjistry said they were replaced with Ahmed Ise Awad, Mohamed Abdi Sabriye and Mohamed Abdi Hayir, in the foreign affairs, interior and commerce posts respectively.
There had been a “a dire need” to appoint new ministers to those posts, the ministry said, adding the new cabinet members would help the government tackle its heavy workload.
Khaire, a former oil and gas executive, was appointed to the post by President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed in February 2017.
His government has been criticised for failing to stem attacks by al Shabaab militants.
In 2017, the defence minister and the head of military were sacked and replaced.
The head of national security and the police commander were sacked after the country’s deadliest truck bomb attack killed 512 people in October.
Both posts have yet to be filled.
With the help of African troops, Somalia’s government has been battling the al Shabaab insurgents to try to restore peace in the country following decades of conflict.
