The event was attended by government officials and civil society organisations to mark this well celebrated day at national level. Somalia adopting and applying internationally acclaimed human rights values is as important as this national day is – Mohamed Shiino stresses and urges all attendants to unite for a better human rights advocacy where all marginalised communities and women get good political representation in Somalia.
