Somalis unhappy with new sales tax

The government instituted a five percent sales tax, the first in nearly 30 years, as part of the conditions set by the IMF to relieve Somalia's debt burden.

    Going to a restaurant in Somalia has become more expensive, and customers don't like it.

    They're angry at the government imposing a five percent sales tax, the first for nearly thirty years.

    The tax is a key condition of the International Monetary Fund to relieve Somalia's debts.
