STORY:
The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General (SRSG) for Somalia, Ambassador Nicholas Kay today (17th May 2014) made a historic visit to the town of Jowhar, in Somalia’s Middle Shabelle region. Ambassador Kay is the highest-ranking UN official to visit the town for the first time in more than two decades.

Accompanied by officials from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), Ambassador Kay met with women, youth, elders and the local administration in a visit aimed at introducing the mandate of UNSOM, taking stock of the progress made in the development of Jowhar and identifying the residents’ needs.

While welcoming the dignitaries, the Governor of the Middle Shabelle region, Abdi Jiinow Alasow, recognized the founding principle of the United Nations as a testament of the world’s collective concern for the welfare of its citizens.

“Countries in the world come to each other’s aid. The world came together to create the United Nations, which represents humanity wherever there is a crisis. This is why Nicholas Kay is here with us today. And whatever challenges that we will share today, it is our hope he will take into consideration and take it up to where they need to be dealt with,” said Governor Alasow.

Jowhar, a rich agricultural town lies 90 kilometres north of Somalia’s capital Mogadishu. In November last year, inter-clan clashes were sparked off following a land dispute. The situation was further compounded by flash floods leading to a dire humanitarian crisis.
