|Somali Education Minister|
Somalia’s Education minister Prof. Ahmed Aideed Ibrahim early this week laid the foundation stone for the construction of a new University in Mogadishu’s Darkenley district.
The facility is set to accommodate over 2 000 students once it becomes fully functional, according to the minister.
The construction of the university is fully funded by Turkish based organisation and is set to be Mogadishu’s centre of excellence in medical studies.
Turkish ambassador to Somalia Cemalettin Kani Torun, Benadir regional governor Mohammoud Ahmed Noor and several government officials were present during the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of the proposed University.
