Earlier this month (April/2012) While Mr. Bana and his associates were having one of their usual wild parties, a fight erupted between Mr. Bana and one of his friends, Mr. Bana was injured during the fight and police were called in, says Somaliland Police. Mr. Bana and his Ethiopian and Somaliland friend were arrested on the spot.
After spending 2 days and 2 nights behind bars, Mr. Bana was released to the United Nations under conditions that he leaves the country and banned from ever entering and/or working in Somaliland again. Under harsh conditions and embarrassment to the UN, Mr. Bana was fired from his position as a UN staff and was immediately flown back to Nairobi, Kenya.
Somaliland authorities’ assured to all International staff operating in the country that they are being extra vigilant on their activities and those despicable and insulting acts and/or behaviors intended to damage the cultural and religious believe of Somaliland citizens, will not be tolerated hence shall be dealt with swiftly and accordingly.
