Tuktuk Operators Demonstrate Over Ongoing Closure Of Mogadishu Roads

Tuktuk operators in Mogadishu this morning held a protest over the ongoing closure of main roads in the capital.

The protesters camped at the KM4 junction bringing public transport to a standstill. Security forces fired bullets to disperse them but the protesters refused to leave.

Speaking to the press, some of the demonstrators demanded the reopening of the roads and complained that President Farmaajo’s recent order to reopen the roads was not enforced.

They stated the security forces temporarily open the roads in the morning and close in the afternoon. They threatened to continue with their protest unless government officials come to them and address their grievances.
