  1. The apes of AMISOM didnt know when their time was up. When their paymasters stopped the funding they want to leave. Leaving the corrupt weak government which has no legitimacy on its own. Guarded by mercenaries and private armies. Whoโ€™s gonna protect the one who calls himself president?. Donโ€™t expect the Ill equipped weak so called Somali army banned from having any weapons to do anything.

  2. Good now we can negotiate with Anti African Union part of Al-Shabaab who love their country. Somalia will eradicate the pro Emirate and pro Eric prince Al-Shabaab traitors and Thugs. MAKE SOMALIA GREAT AGAIN. ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด

  3. " we have trained we have trained" no sir, they trained you!! Somalis army is strong. I mean lets be honest wht do amison do in mogadisho?absolutly nothing. They just in there army base and live there comfortably. We will be happy if they leave.

  4. Itโ€™s really good if they leave our country, because they are the part of the problem and most of the time amisom are the ones who behind the explosions, because they wanna keep collecting they hot paycheck. We will stand our feet and Iโ€™m sure as Somaliโ€™s we are capable of taking out alshabab and their ideology within the blink of eye. Somalia ha noolaato

  5. amisom get out of somalia 11 years fighting with al shabab and nothing change african union mission in somalia is failed they can’t even control one area and AL jazeera when ever they talk about somalia they show ugly places stupid CGTN AFRICA is the best they always show us the beautiful side of somalia guys if you want to see the real somalia go to Cgtn africa al jazeera they have long history of showing the bad side of somalia bbc and al jazeera are the reason why somalia is in war for almost 30 years you will never see them showing positive side of somalia somali government will ban al jazeera and bbc one day in somalia

  6. So the next time Somalis want to insult Africans who are non horners they should realise that ‘bantus’ ‘jareers’ ‘mathows’ are in their country helping them ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I really donโ€™t see the point of Amisom being in Somalia their mission had failed years ago the only people who showed time and time the bravery and courage to fight and end alshabab is the Somali army but even them theyโ€™re told which weapons they can use and canโ€™t use and also underpaid smh

    This is not about fighting to end alshabab this is something else

  8. Lazy Amisom soldiers get $1100 a month. A Somali soldier gets $100. Of course they don’t want to leave. They are earning money. It’s beyond a joke.

  9. Somalia needs strong Army. Bless Somalia. Nabadda ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ด

  10. AU is a criminal organization. Their evil soldiers have committed mass rapes and killed many civilians in the country. Kick them out!

  11. This report is more a media publicity rather than an objective journalism, as it fails to admit that AMISOM presence in the country is deterrent to the development of a robust security sector reforms in Somalia.

    How could they keep peace that doesn’t exist in the first place, if they deny the national security forces necessary tools to restore law and order in the country?.

    Deploying newly trained police officers into the streets of Mogadishu, without proper policing equipments only puts them in harms way. AMISOM takes one step forward, and two steps backward in an effort to siphon more financial resources meant for Somalia.

  13. For those that want the truth, America and Ethiopia ILLEGALLY invaded Somalia in 2006 because a group calling themselves Islamic courts union kicked out the warlords that ran southern somalia and we’re armed and funded by Ethiopia and America. Needless to say, the citizens hated the warlords and therefore celebrated when the we’re kicked out and welcomed the ICY who provided some peace and security not seen since the 80s but Ethiopia we’re upset their warlords lost power and ILLEGALLY invaded only 6 months after the ICY took power. That invasion gave us al shabaab and suicide attacks for the 1st time. AMISON are not in somalia to help somalis, anyone who knows the region knows that having Kenyan, Ethiopian and American troops in somalia can not be a good thing for Somalia.

  14. are there current peace talks with al-Shabab?
    It seems like a bad time to transition.
    May Nature’s G-d help Her children?
    Good Luck All!
