leader missing

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The
whereabouts of longtime Somali
leader Mohamed Siad Barre re-
mained a mystery yesterday, more
than day after he fled the presiden-
tial palace in a tank. Rebels ap-
pealed for calm in the war-ravaged
capital of Mogadishu and promised
a return to democracy.
According to a radio broadcast
of the Somali National Movement,
the oldest of the three major guer-
rilla groups fighting to oust Siad
Barre, loyalist troops and officials
from the old regime were giving up
through much of the Horn of Africa
nation.
"Reports reaching Radio SNM
say that in various parts of our
country, remnants of Siad Barre's
soldiers and officials are surrender-
ing en masse to the bases of the
liberation movements," the broad-
cast said yesterday.
The Somali National Move-
ment, which drawsaits support
mainly from the Isaaq clan in
northern Somalia and controls
most of the interior, has operated
the radio clandestinely for years.
The surrenders were not re-
ported by the new state station
Radio Mogadishu.
For the first time since the
rebel offensive began Dec. 30
against Siad Barre, a spokesperson
of the humanitarian medical team
Doctors Without Borders said his

colleagues in Mogadishu reported
no fighting overnight.
Rebels asked for foreign medi-
cal aid and issued an appeal for
utility and other workers to come
back to their jobs so the city can
resume a semblance of normalcy.
The guerrillas issued a statement
saying new leadership is being
formed to take over rule of this
California-sized nation of 8 mil-
lion.
Whether the workers would re-
turn quickly was uncertain. An es-
timated 50 people have been slain
daily in guerrilla fighting against
troops loyal to Siad.Barre, ruler of
Somalia since 1969 and accused
of rights abuses and corruption.
In a statement broadcast by the
new Radio Mogadishu - Voice of
Somali People, the United Somali
Congress (USC) said the country's
future will be decided by an oppo-
sition "spearheaded by the rebel
armed groups."
"The USC calls for the forma-
tion of a new republic based on
justice, equality, unity and democ-
racy," the broadcast said.
It said an interim government
"drawn from many sections of the
Somali people" will be formed
pending "free elections." No date
was announced.

Gov. selects transportation head

PONTIAC (AP) - Gov. Engler
yesterday named Oakland County
Deputy Executive Patrick Nowak
state transportation director.
Nowak, 52, also is chair of
southeastern Michigan's regional
public transportation agency, the
Suburban Mobility Authority for
Regional Transportation, better
known as SMART. He has been

deputy county executive since
1977 and before that served as a
county commissioner.
He replaces James Pitz, who
held the state transit post under
Gov. James Blanchard.
"He's a man with a lot of expe-
rience in government," Engler said
at a news conference at the Oak-
land County Building. "Pat's a

good manager. He's very innova-
tive. That's what I like about Pat."
Nowak, a former insurance
agent, graduated from the Univer-
sity of Detroit High School and
Marquette University. He and his
wife, Sandy, a teacher in the Pon-
tiac Public Schools, live in
Bloomfield Township.
