Prominent peace activist Mohamed Shirva dies in Mogadishu
Mohamed Shirva, a civil society activist, co-founder and chairman of the Somali Peace Line non-governmental organisation, passed away last night.
Struggling against the impact of drought and internal conflicts on the public and always supporting orphans, Shirwa led the collection of $4.4 million in aid after the bomb attack that killed 300 people in 2017.
He was an activist who supported and supported peace initiatives with his conciliatory struggle between the armed terrorist organization Al-Shabaab, which emerged in 2007, and separatist groups.
President Hassan Sheikh Mahmoud termed the death a “huge blow” to the fragile nation and asked the world to pray for his family. He stated that he is a personality that should be taken as an example because of his peace-supporting initiatives.
