HARGEISA- Somaliland Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister Hon. Mohamed Bihi Yonis has called on the ban of ‘Khat’ green narcotic leaves imported into Somaliland daily from Ethiopia and stated that it has devastating negative impact on the community.

The Minister has insisted that SL must stop the consumption of Khat as other world countries and added that the country does not benefit from it.

He approximately estimated that at least $ 400, 000 are spent on the import and domestic consumption of Khat in Somaliland on daily day basis and went on to say that if calculated on monthly basis you can imagine how much money is lost.

He said he would like to see the ban of ‘Khat’ green narcotic leaves imported into Somaliland daily from Ethiopia and should follow suit other world countries that already banned it.
