AU Mission Hopeful of Progress in Somalia after Farmajo Win
AU envoy in Somalia said that there is hope for Somalia after successful election that saw former Prime Minister assume highest office in the land.
According to the Special Representative of the African Union Commission Chairperson (SRCC) for Somalia Francisco Madeira, President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed (Farmajo) has already spelt out issues his government would prioritize including security, tackling corruption and promoting peace and stability.
His priorities aimed at ensuring Somalia has a functional national security service,
the army, police and the intelligence.
Farmajo has made it clear that for Somalia to be stable, soldiers will be paid on time. Security forces will receive uniforms and equipped properly.
Farmajo noted that Somalia is destined for brighter future following the successful electoral process and promising to bring his government closer to the people.
Meanwhile, he acknowledged securing Somalia goes beyond having a national army and police, adding that other critical institutions must supplement the role of the security forces.
Farmajo also thanked AU mission's effort in stabilizing Somalia and especially the role its playing by helping build capacity for the Somali security institutions in preparation for the drawdown of African Union troops from Somalia, beginning October 2018.
