Did Deputy Governor Dagane’s Facebook post amount to anything?

04 Apr 2024  |  standardmedia.co.ke
The article discusses the communication missteps of Deputy Governor Abdi Dagane of Garissa, Kenya, particularly his choice to post a critical message about his political situation on Facebook during off-peak hours. The author criticizes Dagane's approach, noting that the majority of people in northern Kenya are not online and are better reached through radio. The timing of the post and the medium used are deemed ineffective for reaching the intended audience. The article suggests that traditional media would have amplified his message more effectively. The author emphasizes the importance of effective communication in governance and implies that leaders in northern Kenya need to improve their media literacy and communication strategies.

Ongoing threat: Al-Shabaab's attack on Mogadishu hotel raises security concerns

07 Dec 2022  |  mg.co.za
Al-Shabaab militants launched a significant attack on the Villa Rays Hotel in Mogadishu, situated next to the official residence of Somalia's president, Villa Somalia. The attack, which began with a suicide bombing followed by gunmen breaching the hotel perimeter, lasted 20 hours and resulted in the deaths of eight civilians. High-ranking officials, including four cabinet ministers, were caught in the siege. Despite Al-Shabaab being ousted from Mogadishu in 2011 and recently losing control of several towns, this attack has raised concerns about the group's capabilities and the security vulnerabilities within the Somali government. Officials and politicians, including President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud and minister Adam Hirsi, have expressed their determination to continue the fight against Al-Shabaab, while others point to corruption within the security forces as a contributing factor to the group's persistent threat.
