This man, Mohamed Adan Ismail, is the head of Pastoral Community Development Project (PCDP) of Somali Region. As such, more than anyone else he is the man responsible for whatever that took place in his office.

The Americans have a famous expression to describe when someone shirks his responsibility: “the buck stop with him”.

We don’t care if forged letters were used to loot over 50 million Birr from his office. He either slept on the job – which is criminal negligence and dereliction of duty – or was an accomplice to the crime who facilitated the grand scale looting of the PCDP.

Either way, he must be held to account for this grand theft that took place in his office, under his watch.
