Son hospitalisation au Kenya aurait été rendue nécessaire parès une discussion tendue entre les deux hommes sur la réintégration ou non de ministres démissionnaires. // Somalia: PM Visits the President At London Hospital (En Anglais – Info lecteur)

Somalia’s interim Prime Minister, Nur “Adde” Hassan Hussein, visited President Abdullahi Yusuf who is undergoing an annual medical treatment in London, Radio Garowe reported Saturday.

There was no official word following the closed-door meeting between Somalia’s top leaders, but government insiders said the discussions were centered on Prime Minister Nur Adde’s selections for a new Cabinet.

Last month, the East African regional body IGAD issued time-based benchmarks for the Somali transitional government to meet, including the appointment of new Cabinet ministers.

Prime Minister Nur Adde’s pronounced decision to exclude ten pro-Yusuf ministers from the new Cabinet reportedly infuriated the Somali president and led to speculation of a renewed dispute.
