Mogadishu gets its electricity from generators and there are many companies that provide electricity for a price. This was started by a company called Elman electronics back in the mid 90s and a main generator provides electricity for a neighborhood. There are different generators stationed throughout the city.
The company charges each house by how many light bulbs/rooms they want to light up and how many electric appliances they have.
Also, some families/hotels/restaurants/schools/universities have their own generators that they can turn on or off.
I visited Mogadishu in 1997 and was surprised to find that many districts had electricity and no running water. Marka also had electricity when I visited and still does.
I don't know about Bari or the other regions, I can only speak about southern Somalia.
