Mogadishu Mayor Lets Soldiers and Traders Know: Dining Banned During Ramadan

The governor of Banadir region alongside Mogadishu’s mayor, Yusuf Hussein Jim’ale Madale, has issued a stringent advisory to merchants concerning the operation of restaurants and hotels within Mogadishu during fasting hours in the holy month of Ramadan.

“Ramadan stands as a unique period distinct from others; it’s a time of devout worship deserving of utmost reverence. Therefore, hotels and restaurants in the capital city of Mogadishu are strictly prohibited from opening during this sacred month. Any individual seen smoking or partaking in Khad consumption within a dining establishment will face repercussions. Violations will result in the revocation of licenses,” Governor Madale emphasized on Sunday evening.

In addition, the mayor cautioned government soldiers against being observed on the streets of Mogadishu while not observing fasting.

During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food and water from dawn to dusk, engaging in profound spiritual introspection and cherishing familial connections.
