Sanbalolshe said clan elders were making headway in reconciling the waring sides.

"The Ugas (clan leader) and elders have made great achievements in trying to resolve the crisis," Sanbalolshe said. "The HirShabelle issue is unique but the people of Beletwyene must first resolve their differences," the former NISA director General said while visiting Beletwyene.

The two were opposed to a visit to the town by HirShabelle President Ali Gudlawe
