0

The African Union (AU) has appointed the former Ghanaian president, John Dramani Mahama as its High Representative to Somalia.

This step is to try and resolve the dire political crisis in the country.

In a statement today, the AU said Mahama will ensure there is “a mutually acceptable compromise towards an all-encompassing resolution for the holding of Somali elections in the shortest possible time.”

Tension in Somalia has heightened in recent weeks, following a resolution to extend the term of incumbent president Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed by two years.
