Hassan Sheikh Mohamud on Friday is sworn in as President of Somalia. Presidents of Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti, and representatives from the Gulf country have attended the ceremony. 

In his inauguration speech, Mr. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud said he will pursue a neutral foreign policy in order to not align with any of the contending powers on the world stage. 

He also expressed concern about the hovering drought situation in Somalia and appealed to the international community and the diaspora Somali community to help save lives. 

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed led a delegation to Mogadishu. In his speech at the event, he said ” he will work with the new Somalian president to build on the diplomatic achievements in the past few years,” as reported by Ethiopian State media. 

Abiy Ahmed also said that his country has been adhering to a foreign policy that is based on mutual development and growth and that the two countries have opened a new path of regional integration. 

Furthermore, he remarked on the importance of working with neighbours. “Without cooperation and support from our neighbours, we can not bring about peace and development.” 

He expressed his hope that Somalia and Ethiopia will strengthen diplomatic and people to people relations to ensure shared prosperity.

  1. Dear Editors,

    I saddened that you have not included yesterday’s glorious victory of our sons on the soccer field in the match against the halawa drunk players from Al-Qahirah. It should be in your ‘Latest’ or ‘Featured’ section of your esteemed website. Please give this high mileage beyond-repair Afro-Ethio-Centric a chance to savor the moment. I have to wait for 60 years to witness our boys score another victory over Egypt. I still remember myself glued to a shortwave radio in the former British Protectorate of Aden listening to a live broadcast by an Egyptian station. Please note that the Egyptian team with or without Mohamed Salah is one the most feared squad in the continent. I read the story on another website. BBC Africa has reported the earth shaking victory but has buried it way at the bottom. It shows you how that media outlet hates to hear any good news from that gem of the colored. Please give us the chance to celebrate! Peace!!!
