Speaking to the media on the purpose of their visit, permanent secretary in the federal justice ministry Dr. Ismail Jimale noted the long road taken to attain a countrywide justice system.

“We came here to sign on a continuous agenda from 2016 on the general importance of the kind of judicial system we shall apply as Somali people for the near and far future. It’s a legal document that will require further amendments. We accepted to use a federal system unlike our past centralized one. We need to devolve justice to the grassroots” said Dr. Jimale
