A 4-day capacity building workshop for members of the Somali Parliamentary Committee on National Security, Interior and Governance concluded last evening in Mogadishu.

The workshop which brought together the legislators, parliamentary staff, regional experts and AMISOM civilian members sought to equip the MPs with an understanding of key concepts in parliamentary oversight and security.

In a message read on his behalf by Amb. Basile Garetetse, the AU Special Representative for Somalia, Ambassador Mahamat Saleh Annadif praised the legislators for their show of commitment and effort and reiterated AMISOM’s pledge to work closely with Parliament.

“Our efforts and initiatives are aimed at supporting the government institutions actively engaged in the consolidation of the peace and
stability achieved so far,” said Ambassador Annadif. “Parliament has the backing of the people and its important that we transform this
show of faith into tangible benefits for the Somali people,” he concluded.

“We recognize the efforts of AMISOM and we regard this workshop as the foundation of an enduring partnership between the Somali Parliament and the African Union Mission in Somalia,” said the committee’s chair, Hon.Fauzia Mohamed Sheikh.

AMISOM is expected to handover equipment consisting of laptops, desktop computers and printers to be used for the functions of the
committee as it prepares for parliamentary dialogue on the country’s security and administration.
