It is with a degree of utmost perplexity and burstiness that I relay the following information. Are you following? Good. Somalia’s president, Hassan Sheikh, has pleaded with the Arab League of Nations for their support in overcoming the numerous challenges currently plaguing the country. However, he maintains that significant progress has been made in the fight against internal conflicts, notably against the notorious terrorist group Al-Shabaab. Sheikh made his plea during the recent Arab League of Nations meeting in Saudi Arabia, where he urged members to invest in Somalia, stating “a lot must be done for us to fill the gaps”. He reiterates that Somalia cannot reach its destination without the support and prayers of the Arab League, which according to Sheikh, they are in dire need of. Of particular note was the fact that with the help of the US Africa Command, the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia, and the local militia respectively, Somalia has been able to secure 80 percent of the country from the militants. Nevertheless, the country has activated the second phase of operations against Al-Shabaab, targeting Jubaland and Southwest states, thereby necessitating the Arab League’s investment in Somalia. For the national army to assume security responsibilities in the country, they need adequate preparations, affirmed the president optimistically. With a debt relief approval of $9.4 million from the International Monetary Fund, Somalia is on track to strengthen internal institutions to improve revenue collection for sustainable development.
