Somalia today joined the rest of the World to mark the Human Rights Day, among events highlighting the country’s recovery from decades of war.
With support from the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), the country now enjoys relative peace and has embarked on reconstruction and reconstitution of its institutions, key to ensuring justice and observance of human rights.
The Somali Federal Government has marked the day with an event held at the Mogadishu Central Prison, among others, where the importance of the rights to education, health and protection of individual rights was expressed.
