The president of Somali handball federation Mohamed Hurshe Hassan who first addressed at the opening ceremony of the championship said that his federation spent efforts in organizing the big championship game.

"We have two important points in holding this competition. The first is to keep handball alive in Somalia and the second is to protect young boys from falling into the hands of notorious criminals in the country. I think that we have succeeded in our ambitions," said Somali handball federation president.

The president of Somali National Olympic committee Aden Hajji Yeberow who addressed at the opening ceremony praised the Somali handball federation for its activities in and outside the war-ravaged country.

"I am very grateful to the Somali handball federation president and the members of his executive committee for the positive job they are waging.I urge them to continue the good job," the Somali NOC president told the ceremony.

Meanwhile the Waberi district commissioner Ahmed Meyre Makaran thanked Somali NOC and the handball federation for selecting his district stadium to host the tournament.

"We have made a lot of efforts to ensure the security here in Waberi. That is why it became a safe haven for sports games," the commissioner said. There were scores of police men in and around the stadium to tighten the security.

Waberi district also holds the Somali NOC and Somali Football Federation after they fled from their compounds in the Al-shabaab-controlled side of the capital.
