I think with the advances that have been made in Somalia, there is
need for people with the necessary skills to come back. During the
period the country was at war, there was lack of education, as a
result, a lot of skills are needed in Somalia. This is evident in the
way Mogadishu is developing.

There have been a number of successes. One of the most recent
successes was repulsing the attack on Halgan by Al-Shabaab. We
have trained a number of SNA troops we have trained police officers
as well. AMISOM Police continues conducting training. They
collocate with their compatriots and work together. In SNA we are
trying to get the leaders to collocate, work with AMISOM and also go

on joint operations because our exit strategy is premised on handing


over to the Somali National Security Forces, which is Somali National
Army and the Somali Police Force.

I would like to advise the leadership of AMISOM that besides
restoring security and peace, it has to establish projects that help
educate youths. The youth are misled by the terrorists and they are
the ones who are killing people. I would like to advise the leadership
of AMISOM to establish programmes and projects that educate
youth so that they can lead a better life.

I think AMISOM troops have done a lot for the Somali government
and the Somali community. They have eliminated the threat of AlShabaab militants and have so far done a lot of work for the Somali
government. I think they are going to do even better and work hard
on the security of the country. end

AMISOM Official Urges Somalis To Return Home To Build


Nation
Kampala, June 22, 2016 - A senior official of the African Union
Mission In Somalia (AMISOM) has urged Somalis in the regional
diaspora to return home and help rebuild the nation.
Maj. Gen. Fidza Dludlu, AMISOMs Head of Mission Support, who led
a delegation of officials of the mission to meet with representatives
of Somali diaspora communities in Kampala, Tuesday, said he
believed this present moment was timely.

Advances have been made in Somalia and there is need for people
with skills to come back and help rebuild the country. Due to the
many years suffered in civil war, there is now an urgent need for
highly skilled people in Somalia, the General said.
Dludlu, who stood in for the African Union Special Representative for
Somalia (SRCC), Francisco Madeira, shared the gains AMISOM has
made in the fight against Al-Shabaab terrorists who have been
waging an insurgency against the Federal government and
highlighted efforts being made to restore peace and security.
Somalia is slowly emerging from decades of war and instability,
evidenced by a booming construction sector, livestock trade,
fisheries and service industries, telecommunication and money
remittance services and an estimated growing GDP, Dludlu said.
With the help of the United Nations, AMISOM and other international
partners, the country has successfully established federal
administrations and plans to conduct legislative and presidential
ballots before the end of the year.
Despite a visible presence, AMISOM has succeeded in degrading the
presence of Al-Shabaab terrorists. Earlier this month AMISOMs
Ethiopian contingent thwarted an Al-Shabaab attack on a military
base in Halgan, killing more than a hundred militants.
Responding to queries about security of the country, the AMISOM
Deputy Force Commander, Maj. Gen. Mohammedesha Zeyinu, said
Somalia is relatively secure due to sacrifices made by the AMISOM
forces.
There are about 2,000 Somali youth currently enrolled in various
Ugandan universities, according to Abdinasir Hashi Hirsi, a
representative of the Somali Students Association in Uganda, who
was present at the meeting.
Abdiaziz Mohamed Hassan, a student at Kampala International
University, urged AMISOM to also help improve education standards
in the country besides securing the country. He cited unemployment
as a major cause for youth radicalization and said Al-Shabaab
militants were luring young people with money.
The youth are the ones who have been misled by the terrorists and
are the ones who are killing people. I urge AMISOM to establish
projects that enable the youth get better education and live a better
life, he said.
