Somalia will reclaim its status to lead pan Africanism, president Farmajo

Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has vowed that the Horn of Africa nation will bounce back on its feet to feel its role in Africa continent.

In a Twitter post, Somali president lauded AU for its commitment to give chance Somalia to participate decision-making on issues affecting the continent.

“Our great nation will reclaim its status that once made it the Pride of Africa and Pioneers of Pan-Africanism,” the post reads in part. “We are glad H.E Thabo Mbeki backs and believes in Somalia’s vision because he witnessed it in 1974 when he was in Mogadishu to attend the OAU Summit.”

On Saturday, African Union High-level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) led by former South African President, Thabo Mbeki, arrived in Mogadishu for high-level talks with Somali President, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Farmajo on pursuing the objectives of regional integration in the Horn of Africa.

The visit was part of the delegates’ mission to ensure that the countries of the Horn of Africa deal with matters of peace and security and economic integration in a holistic manner.

According to Mbeki, the planned integration of the Horn of Africa countries would be hinged on three pillars, which would culminate in the countries of the region developing a common security architecture.

The panel, comprising officials from the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) and the United Nations, will also interact with the leadership of the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), the United Nations Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), the diplomatic community, civil society and other stakeholders.
