PRESIDENT YOWERI K. MUSEVENI: “After the IGAD Heads of State Summit yesterday [September 13, 2016], I visited Ugandan troops serving under AMISOM at the Halane Base Camp headquarters near Mogadishu International Airport.
It is the second time I am visiting our troops in Somalia.The first time was in November 2010 when our troops were involved in a fierce battle for the liberation of Mogadishu from Al-Shabaab bandits. By July 2011, we had driven them out of Mogadishu.
I want to thank our troops for the good work they are doing in Somalia. They have helped Somalia by fighting the enemy and setting a good example to Somalis.”
