Mogadishu (SD) – African Union Deputy Special Representative for Somalia Simon Mulongo spoke to the decision to expel him out of Somalia by the federal government.
Mulongo who is still in Mogadishu spoke to the Daily Monitor in Uganda and saying he was surprised about the decision to expel him, as has done nothing wrong.
“The language used [in Somalia government’s diplomatic note] contains block phrases whose details and meaning I don’t know. I have no [known] reason [for the decision]. I have no idea what this is about. I want to deal with facts, not rumours,” Mulongo told the Daily Monitor.
When asked about his next step, Mulongo said he is awaiting the African Union leaders for guidance and so he couldn’t say anything.
The Federal Government of Somalia accused Simon Mulongo that he has been involved in activities that are outside of AMISOM’s duties and the Somali security strategy, and ordered him to leave the country within seven days.
Mulongo becomes a second diplomat expelled from Somalia in 2 years, and given 7 days to leave the country.
