Somalis Must Invest in Education to Reduce Poverty, Says Ex-Speaker of Parliament

“Somalis must invest in education as a solution for reducing poverty in the country,” a former Speaker of the House of the People said.

Prof. Mohamed Jawari, an ex-Speaker of the Lower House, said this on Thursday during the ongoing National Education Conference in Mogadishu.

Currently, literacy levels in the East African nation do not conjure much confidence.

The former parliamentary Speaker was speaking on Thursday.

“Reduction of poverty would then allow more Somalis to enjoy social mobility and improved quality of life,” Prof. Jawari added.
