The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change in Hirshabelle State is deeply concerned about the recent incident of a closed container, believed to contain hazardous chemicals, washing up on the beach front of Adale District.

The container, which was discovered by local fishermen, poses a significant risk to the surrounding environment and residents. The Ministry is working closely with local authorities to identify the contents of the container and to ensure that it is safely removed from the area.

The Ministry is seeking support from the international donor community and NGOs in identifying the type of hazard and in providing technical assistance in the safe removal of the container. The Ministry is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of the people and the environment in Hirshabelle State, and welcomes any assistance that can be provided.

The Ministry is urging the local community to take precautions and to stay away from the affected area until the situation is resolved. It is also reminding the public of the importance of proper disposal of hazardous materials and the need for vigilance in identifying and reporting potential hazards.

The Ministry is calling on the federal government of Somalia to take immediate action to prevent the illegal dumping of hazardous waste along the country’s coastline. This incident serves as a reminder of the need for strict enforcement of environmental regulations and the importance of preventing environmental damage caused by human activities.

The Ministry will provide further updates as the situation develops, and will continue to work with local authorities, international donors, and NGOs to address any environmental challenges in Hirshabelle State.
