Somali Soldier Jailed For Selfie With the President


A Somali soldier has been jailed following provocative selfie with the President last week. The photo of the soldier in the front seat with President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud on the back seat but in deep slumber has gone viral in the social media last week.

The soldier named Hassan Farah was escorting the President and army chief to the passing out parade of Somali Special Forces in Beled-Ogle airbase outskirts of the capital Mogadishu.

He posted the selfie with President in slumber in his facebook post bragging being in the same car with the most senior Somali government official.

Several social media users downloaded the posted pix and reposted the same pix in their accounts criticizing the presidency office before the soldier was forced to take down the picture of the president but it was too late and caused his detention.

Sources in Villa Somalia have confirmed the arrest to Radio Dalsan.
