President Silanyo grants pardons to over 50 prisoners in Borama

Borama is the capital of Awdal region in Western Somaliland.

BORAMA – Somaliland President Ahmed Mohamed Mohamoud Silanyo pardoned over 50 prisoners in Borama’s central prison last week after many prisons became ill with AWD (Acute Watery Diarrhea).

The AWD outbreak has killed close to 200 people in Somaliland since March and has left thousands hospitalized.

President Silanyo pardoned 87 prisoners in Burao’s central prison earlier this month after six AWD-related deaths were reported in the prison.
