Somali President, Hassan sheikh Mahamoud has today reiterated that Jubaland is part and parcel of Somalia and will ever remain so.
He said Kenyan troops in the region were taking part in the stabilization
process and that there is no rift between the two countries.
On a different story, the president called on the youth to
fully participate in Government initiated programs and rehabilitation processes.
The president was referring to the demolition of roadblocks which has adversely
affected hundreds of youth who operated them albeit to the benefits and relief
of the general Somali public.
The president urged them to be useful instruments of peace
and to take part in the nation building process.
The President’s address is coming at a time when many
Somalis are discontented with Kenya’s direct involvement in political affairs
of Somalia’s Juba region.
