The African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) joined the rest of the continent in marking Africa Day on Monday by lauding the progress made in stabilizing the Horn of Africa nation.

Francisco Madeira, head of the mission, said the AU mission, working jointly with the Somali security forces, are providing the security foundation on which the government and all international actors rely to fulfill their mandates in Somalia today.

According to Madeira, both the AMISOM and the Somali National Army have degraded al-Shabab and pushed the bulk of its forces from Mogadishu and from all other liberated areas across the sectors.

He said the AU mission has helped expand humanitarian access and provided various forms of relief to a significant number of Somalis.

According to the AU envoy, the AMISOM is currently working with the government to help the people of Somalia deal with the disruptions being brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Enditem
