PRESS RELEASE (For Immediate Release).
Mogadishu, 2 April 2015 – The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (SRCC) for Somalia and Head of AMISOM, Ambassador Maman S. Sidikou has condemned the killing of innocent people by Al-Shabaab terrorists in Garissa, Kenya.
Ambassador Sidikou expressed indignation at what he describes as Al Shabaab’s attempt to destroy the fabric of our common existence as sisterly neighbours by perpetrating violence against innocent youths studying to improve their lot and their future for the overall benefit of their country in particular and the region at large. He notes that this is another act of desperation by Al Shabaab, which has significantly been destroyed inside Somalia, and that such despicable attacks will not deter the collective effort to improving the situation in Somalia in order to contribute to a more safer region.
While reiterating the African Union’s support to the government and people of Kenya, Ambassador Sidikou also condoles with the relatives and friends of these innocent victims of outrageous terrorism and prays for the quick recovery of the injured.
