Speaking to candidates in Mogadishu before the examination started, Ahmed said: “It is a great day for us taking centralized examination from our secondary schools today.

“This is the progress our country is making now. I wish you success in the exam.”

Internal Security Minister, Abdirisak Mohamed, told newsmen that security details were deployed to area where examinations took place to repel any prospective attacks by terrorists or rebels.

Between 1991 and 2000 the country was usually called a failed state due to the absence of a central government and residents returned to customary and religious law in most regions.
