Somalia: U.S. government intends to suspend its support for Danab forces

WASHINGTON (SD) – The United States government has stated that they will reassess their relationship and partnership with their forces and allies such as Danab, a special unit within the Somali National Army (SNA).

A U.S. official informed Reuters that Washington is seriously considering addressing all allegations of corruption. Leaders of the Danab Forces have been accused of embezzling funds from the black market, which is part of an agreement between Somalia and the United States.

“We look forward to working with Danab on accountability measures to prevent incidents that could affect future aid,” the official said, without directly commenting on whether the US has stopped supporting Danab forces.

Reports suggest that the U.S. government intends to suspend its support for Danab by June 2024.

The Somali government has stated that it has taken action and dismissed several members of the Danab Forces leadership after allegations of misappropriating funds.

The Danab Forces have been a crucial asset in the United States’ efforts to support the fight against the Al-Shabaab group.
