Somaliland - Protests in Berbera against DPWorld

The arrival of the Engineers from DP World in in Berbera ignited protests in the city today.

 The people are protesting against the lease of the port to DP World based in Dubai.
Locals are angry that the Labour and stevedores from Berbera will be deprived of the right to work in the port . Most the people living in Berbera depend directly or indirectly on income from the port .
The fact that the port will be run by a foreign company who could source out their workforce from elsewhere has angered  most of the residents of Berbera.
Demonstrators in this video are directly blaming the president of Somaliland for ignoring the calls of the people of Sahil and are against the lease of the port to DPWorld.
