Somalia: Outgoing President Denies Corruption Charges

Mogadishu — Somalia's outgoing Transitional Federal Government (TFG) president Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, denied corruption allegation during time in power.

Addressing to parliament on Friday, Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, said that he worked for his country in fair and transparent manner with no fraud and embezzlement.

Mr Ahmed, who is now vying for second term in office told Somali federal parliamentarians that charges of TFG' corruption are off-base.

Somali parliament is going hold a secret ballot next Monday, September 10 to choose the next president, a historic day for Somalia.

The comments came after the UN report alleged that seven out of every $10 donated to the transitional government had gone missing.
