Dhobley - IOM, the UN Migration Agency, in partnership with the Immigration and Naturalization Directorate of Somalia held a ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of a new border post in Dhobley on 21 September. The project is funded by the Government of Norway.
“We have been renting a small office where all our paper work is done but it is far from the entry point and this makes it difficult to monitor movement along the border. Operating in open air is risky for us as government officials, we can easily be attacked by criminals,” said Mohamud Abdi Ahmed, a Senior Migration Officer with the Government of Somalia.
He added, “IOM has trained our staff, equipped our offices and provided us with vehicles for mobile border patrol which are very crucial for us and meet our needs. We are glad to work closely with IOM and welcome you to implement this new activity and thank you for your support.”
