Somalia president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has called out Al Shabaab militants for claiming they are in conflict with non-muslims but in turn killing innocent people who are Muslim.
The Somalia president who made an address during National Prayer breakfast at Safari Park termed the militia ‘enemy of mankind’ for taking out innocent lives at the same time tagging Islam to bloodshed.
Farmajo called on regional states to participate in the fight against violent extremism and acts of terrorism saying that the Al Shabaab militia is a common enemy that should be faced out.
Prior to the gathering, the visiting president held talks with Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta on Wednesday focusing on security issues.
Kenyatta’s office said the two leaders discussed bilateral issues and security matters including the continued support for African Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) in which Kenyan forces play a big role.
“The two leaders updated each other on shared security concerns as well as progress in regional efforts to bring peace and stability back to Somalia with the help of Kenya and other nations,” it said.
President Mohamed arrived in the country early Wednesday accompanied by a high-level delegation of ministers and senior government officials.
