AU delegation led by former South African President arrives in Mogadishu

Former South African President and head of the African Union high-level implementation panel for South Sudan and Sudan, Thabo Mbeki arrived in Mogadishu on Monday.

Mr. Mbeki and his delegation were received by Somali Foreign Minister, Ambassador Ahmed Isse Awad and others including UN Special envoy in Somalia, James Swan.

According to the schedule, both HE Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed “Farmaajo” and Deputy Prime Minister HE Mahdi Mohamed Gulaid (Khadar) will meet with the AU team at two different meetings.

The visit of the AUHIP delegation will take two days (July 20-22), where they will hold several consultative meetings with Somali civil society, IGAD, AMISOM, and UNSOM.

Mbeki held talks with Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta in Nairobi to discuss regional peace and security.

The relative calm that was experienced in the country in recent years has led to the arrival of high profile delegation in Somalia in the past years.

AU chair, Musa Faki Mohamed arrived in Mogadishu on February 2017 whereas UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres and Ban Kii Moon respectively arrived in the same year.
