Latest media reports from Somalia indicate that Burhakabo DC Mohamed Abdi Mohamed has succumbed to injuries he sustained in landmine blast near his house in Oct 15.
Burhakabo district commissioner was pronounced dead last night at AMISOM military hospital at Halane base in Mogadishu where he has been undergoing treatment over the past weeks.
Burhakabo district administration officials confirmed his passing on but maintained his death will not be in vain.
Late Mohamed who served years as the district commissioner of Burhakabo in Baay region, is expected to be laid to rest in his hometown in state funeral, officials said.
Over the past few weeks, Al Shabaab fighters who lost major ground in the battle have been carrying out attacks especially using remote controlled landmines targeting senior government officials and security personnel in Southern Somalia.
