Residents in Borama could not figure out why the president’s trip was kept so secret and the motives behind his visit. Even though Borama is his hometown, the president does not always visit. It is not clear if the president will meet with residents of Borama including the elders and local leaders before his departure back to the capital, Hargeisa.
