Somali president to pay a visit to troops on the frontlines


MOGADISHU [SMN] – Somali president Hassan Sheikh Mohamud is expected to visit the frontlines in the Middle Shabelle region, according to sources.


The president will be wearing a military uniform and meet with the troops fighting against Al-Shabaab in central Somalia. The visit is aimed at boosting the morale of the soldiers.

Mohamud will proceed on his trip to the Hiran region, where the troops backed by locals made gains against Al-Shabaab and captured dozens of villages during the operations.

The PM has previously made a similar visit to the frontlines as part of the efforts to defeat Al-Shabaab and recapture the entire regions under the militants.
