Leaked - Djibouti Republican Guard goes recruiting in Somaliland

(Medeshi)- Several hundreds of soldiers are being recruited for the Republican Guard which is in charge of security for the Djibouti Head of State.

The majority of them will be hired by competition in Djibouti, but dozens of others, preferably from the same Issa/Mamassan ethnic group as President Isma├»l Omar Guelleh (IOG) will be hired directly by the head of the Republican Guard, Colonel Mohamed Djama Doualeh, who has just been to his birth town of Gerissa, in the Zeila region of Somaliland, for this purpose. The late former president Hassan Gouled Aptidon, Mohamed Djama’s uncle, is also from Gerissa which was then situated in the portion of Somaliland under British colonial rule.
