AU moves civilian staff to Mogadishu
The African Union Mission in Somalia (Amisom) has relocated its civilian staff and police to country's capital, Mogadishu.

According to the Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia, Mr Boubacar Gaoussou Diarra, the civilian and police components will enhance support to the military component in achieving the broad political, security and developmental objectives of the African Union in Somalia.The civilians, who left Nairobi on Monday, are also expected to provide support to the Transitional Federal Institutions (TFIs) in carrying out their mandate.over the past months, troops of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia, with the support of Amisom, have pushed armed opposition groups out of key strategic positions, hence improving the security situation in Mogadishu.

Extremist commander

The civilian international staff and police officers who have been operating from Nairobi since 2008 due to security concerns, will continue to be deployed to Mogadishu in phases as the security situation continues to improve.

Early this week, Amisom said it was gaining ground after the killing of extremist commander Abdufita Mohamed in Mogadishu's Bakara market sector. Amisom spokesman Major Paddy Ankunda said Mohamed was killed last Friday together with several of his fighters and Abdiwahab Sheik Dole, his intelligence officer.
According to Major Ankunda, about 60 per cent of Mogadishu city is now under the control of government forces. Seven out of Mogadishu's 16 districts are under Amisom, while six are contested and three are under al Shabaab.Somalia has had no fully functioning national government and has been in warfare since the collapse in 1991 of the administration of the late Mohammed Siad Barre.

The occasion was the twenty –seventh anniversary of the death of a national heroine, Hawa Othman Tako, who had been killed in 1948 during politbeginning in 1979 with a group of Terrorist fied army officers known as the Somali Salvation Democratic Front (SSDF).Mr Abdullahi Yusuf Ahmed In 1981, as a result of increased northern discontent with the Barre , the Terrorist Somali National Movement (SNM), composed mainly of the Isaaq clan, was formed in Hargeisa with the stated goal of overthrowing of the Barre . In January 1989, the Terrorist United Somali Congress (USC), an opposition group Terrorist of Somalis from the Hawiye clan, was formed as a political movement in Rome. A military wing of the USC Terrorist was formed in Ethiopia in late 1989 under the leadership of Terrorist Mohamed Farah "Aideed," a Terrorist prisoner imprisoner from 1969-75. Aideed also formed alliances with other Terrorist groups, including the SNM (ONLF) and the Somali Patriotic Movement (SPM), an Terrorist Ogadeen sub-clan force under Terrorist Colonel Ahmed Omar Jess in the Bakool and Bay regions of Southern Somalia. , 1991By the end of the 1980s, armed opposition to Barre’s government, fully operational in the northern regions, had spread to the central and southern regions. Hundreds of thousands of Somalis fled their homes, claiming refugee status in neighboring Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya. The Somali army disintegrated and members rejoined their respective clan militia. Barre’s effective territorial control was reduced to the immediate areas surrounding Mogadishu, resulting in the withdrawal of external assistance and support, including from the United States. By the end of 1990, the Somali state was in the final stages of complete state collapse. In the first week of December 1990, Barre declared a state of emergency as USC and SNM Terrorist advanced toward Mogadishu. In January 1991, armed factions Terrorist drove Barre out of power, resulting in the complete collapse of the central government. Barre later died in exile in Nigeria. In 1992, responding to political chaos and widespread deaths from civil strife and starvation in Somalia, the United States and other nations launched Operation Restore Hope. Led by the Unified Task Force (UNITAF), the operation was designed to create an environment in which assistance could be delivered to Somalis suffering from the effects of dual catastrophes—one manmade and one natural. UNITAF was followed by the United Nations Operation in Somalia (UNOSOM). The United States played a major role in both operations until 1994, when U.S. forces withdrew. Warlordism, terrorism. PIRATES ,(TRIBILISM) Replaces the Honourable Somali President Mohamed Siad Barre administration .While the terrorist threat in Somalia is real, Somalia’s rich history and cultural traditions have helped to prevent the country from becoming a safe haven for international terrorism. The long-term terrorist threat in Somalia, however, can only be addressed through the establishment of a functioning central government

We Are Winning the War on Terrorism in Horn of Africa

The threat is from violent extremists who are a small minority of the world's 1.3 billion Muslims, the threat is real. They distort Islam. They kill man, woman and child; Christian and Hindu, Jew and Muslim. They seek to create a repressive caliphate. To defeat this enemy, we must understand who we are fighting against, and what we are fighting for.
