Storyline:National News

The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia and Head of AMISOM, Ambassador Maman Sidikou has condemned the dawn attack on an AMISOM Base in the town of Leego, by Al Shabaab militants.

Ambassador Sidikou regrets the losses suffered and registers his solidarity with the Government and people of Burundi whose soldiers, serving under AMISOM, were affected in this callous attack.

“This attack will not diminish our resolve to continue to support the Somali Government and people until they are free from terrorism”, said Ambassador Sidikou.

AMISOM will continue with the Joint Operations with the Somalia National Army (SNA) to liberate any other parts of Somalia still under Al Shabaab domination in order to pacify the entire country so that the Somali people can go about their day-to-day life and business in peace and in freedom.
