Somalia: Puntland President makes major cabinet reshuffle
Puntland President Abdiweli Mohamed Ali, has made major changes to his cabinet on Wednesday, with ministers being sacked or shifted into other roles.
According to the new cabinet list, eight new ministers have joined the government, majority of them new faces to replace eight others who were dropped.

They were all fired on charges of failing to deliver according to expectation despite there being no regulations or law that specifies cabinet conduct and performance.
The reshuffle, a year and half after the last cabinet was formed, is one of the first major cabinet reshuffling done by the President since taking over office in January, 2014.
In his speech to the regional Parliament on Monday, the President pledged to improve on the economic sector and address the recent insecurity incidents.
