Somali Foreign Minister Explains Simon Mulongo expulsion

Mogadishu (SD) – Somalia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohamed Abdirizak Mohamud, explained why the Deputy Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission for Somalia, Simon Mulongo, had been expelled from the country.

The minister underlined that Mr. Mulongo failed to limit his work within the parameters of his mandate, noting that he had already received several warnings. But now the government made a clear decision to kick him out of the country.

“He was involved in something other than his work, and acted out of the scope of his contract in the country and that led to his expulsion” Minister Abdirizak told government media.

Somali Foreign Affairs Minister Mohamed Abdirizak Mohamud said this shows that the Somali government will not allow diplomats to do anything on their own, violate their agreement to stay in the country, and this will not harm the government’s relations with international organizations.

“The FGS will hold accountable AMISOM personnel, particularly those at the leadership level, who are expected to be beyond reproach in their integrity as they discharge their duty under the UN/AU mandate.” The minister tweeted earlier.

Adding “Somalia will realise the implementation of the STP, everyone will be held accountable for their action, no one will be allowed to hinder the Somali nation, we have simply come too far”
