The mayor of Garowe city openly presents the monthly district revenue and expenditure which is a sense of openness and first ever openness amongst the district authorities across Puntland. Although, the budget is presented in numbers which is hard to the public to understand easily, but it is the beginning of an open government and will influence other districts to do so.
The openness shown by the mayor already established good reputation and public trust which in turn is expected to increase tax collection.
Bareedo Platform encourages open government and would like to appreciate the mayor for opening up a culture of accountability and transparency. In this opportunity, Bareedo Platform requests continuation of this openness and engagement of the citizens in the preparation of annual budgeting and expenditure discussions.
Below are the analysis of June 2019 revenue and expenditure presented by the mayor:-
