Mogadishu 02 May 2009
Associated Somali Journalists (ASOJ) is strongly condemning the National Union of Somali Journalists for rerouting the rights of the journalists living in Djibouti as exile, unfairness and money-laundering.

ASOJ is also accusing the Djibouti government of encouraging the so-called Journalist union leader to divert the foreign funds attended to help the journalists that fled for their safety.



This follows a complaint by a group of Somali journalists in Djibouti who opposed a newly form Somali Independent News Agency by NUSOJ leadership depicting it as none representing the exiled journalists.

“We are here by indicating that we are absolutely against the formation of SOMINA and see it as a tool served for particular aim. We were expecting that the journalists taken for the new agency will include those exiled in Djibouti but that did not happen and rights were violated indeed,” said in a statement issued by a group of six Somali journalists living in Djibouti. 

The statement released by Mekahil Rashid Bare and Abdukadir Zubeyr Hassan of Shabelle Media Network, Abdulahi Muse Kalgacal of Horn Afrik Radio, Farhan Hared Mohamud and Mohamed Nor Moalin Johanes of Government Radio in Baidoa and Mohamed Moalin Osman (All-Man) of Somalitalk.com and Ayamaha News Press.

“It is unfortunate, shameful and dishonesty that the Djibouti information minister Ali Abdi Farah makes dishonor to the journalists in his country and collaborates with a man known for exploiting the journalists’ name . What we know that the cheater Omar Faruk, the NUSOJ general secretary lost the latest aid money paid by Doha Media center for six journalists operating in Mogadishu,” said Dahir Abdulle Alasow, ASOJ chairman.

Alasow described Omar Faruk as a man who looks after only for his own interest and leaves behind the troubled journalists.


They said they are telling all the Somali journalists in and out of the country that they are not represented by the NUSOJ and called it as an organization used by figures that behave like warlords and always do ignore the rights of the Somali journalists and take the aid money in one pocket.
