OPINION: Liberation of Somalia from Al-Shabab: A Major Victory for the Somali People3 min read
Somalia has recently seen a significant increase in its security and stability, with the liberation of key cities and towns from Al shabab. This is an important milestone in Somalia’s long journey to peace and stability, and is a major victory for the Somali people.
The liberation of key cities and towns from Al shabab was achieved through a combination of concerted efforts from the Somali government and the local population. The Somali Army played a vital role in providing security, logistics, and support for the uprising of the local population against Al shabab rule. The SNA was able to drive Al shabab out of the cities.
The liberation of these cities and towns is significant in more ways than one. It will provide security and stability to the citizens of Somalia, who had been living under constant fear and terror. Moreover, it will lead to increased economic activity and investment opportunities in the liberated regions, allowing for further development of the country.
The liberation of these cities and towns has also sent a strong message to Al shabab, that they cannot continue to terrorize the people of Somalia. This should discourage them from attempting to take control of other cities and towns in the future.
The international community has also taken note of this significant milestone in Somalia’s history and has expressed its support for the Somali government’s efforts. This support has taken the form of both financial and political assistance.
The liberation of key cities and towns from Al shabab is a major victory for the Somali people, and is a testament to the resiliency and courage of the Somali people. It is now up to the Somali government and its allies to ensure that the gains made are not reversed and that the citizens of Somalia can continue to enjoy peace and security.
Somalia now has the opportunity to build on its recent achievements and become an even more secure, prosperous and stable nation.
Key Priorities Government should focus on
- A strong and unified federal country that upholds the rule of law and focuses on the development of its citizens. In order to achieve this, the government must work to strengthen its security forces and establish a functioning justice system.
- Economic Development, by encouraging investment and entrepreneurship: This will help to create jobs and increase incomes for the Somali people. Additionally, investing in infrastructure projects such as roads, energy, and telecommunications will help to improve the quality of life for the Somali people, and create a better environment for business.
- Education and health services: The Government must ensure it provides access to health care services in the liberated districts. This will help to improve the standard of life for the Somali people, and create a better environment for all.
- Working to create a more open and democratic society. This means ensuring that the rights of all citizens are respected, and that the voices of all individuals are heard. This will help to ensure that the Somali people can continue to enjoy peace and stability in our country.
The success of the liberation of key cities and towns from Al shabab would not have been possible without the leadership of President Hassan Sheikh and the commitment of the Somali National Army and local populations across the country. Since his election victory, President Hassan Sheikh has worked tirelessly to ensure the safety of his citizens and to bring about a lasting peace in Somalia.
The Somali National Army, supported by the local population, played a vital role in driving out Al shabab from the districts. The courage and determination of the soldiers of the SNA are an inspiration to all those striving for peace and stability in Somalia.
Finally, the local populations of districts across the country showed great resilience in the face of Al shabab’s terror and stood firmly behind the Somali government and the army.
The liberation of key cities and towns from Al shabaab is a major victory for the people of Somalia, and a testament to the courage, resilience and determination of the Somali people. It is now up to the Somali government and regional States to ensure that this victory is not reversed and that the citizens of Somalia can enjoy peace and security.
