Condolences from Radio Somaliland for Richard and Enid Eyeington

On behalf of the staff of Radio Somaliland and the peace loving people of Somaliland every where expressed our grief and sadness again at the murder of British couple Richard and Enid Eyeington in Somaliland, sorrow and devastation withstand among SOS Children's Village staff worldwide - in particular among the teachers and students at the SOS Secondary School in Sheikh. The couple were found dead at their home in the school compound. They had been shot by unknown gunmen.

We condemn this heinous and cowardly act with the strongest words. Our sympathies are with the two children and grandchildren, which Richard and Enid have left behind. In addition, we send our condolences to the staff of SOS Children’s Village, the organisation for which Richard and Enid worked, and the British public, in general. We also urge the government of Somaliland to act swiftly and precisely to bring the culprits to a justice.

Richard and Enid Eyeington, 62 and 61, had retired from teaching after working in Swaziland for 32 years, but moved to the Republic of Somaliland a year ago, fearing that plans to reopen a secondary school would otherwise be abandoned.

May God have mercy on your souls and reward you for the good deeds you have done.


In sympathy,
Ahmed Quick
Staff of Radio Somaliland
