All enquiries to news@auunist.org CREDIT REQUIRED: AU/UN IST LANGUAGE: SOMALI/NATS DATELINE: 12 MARCH 2013+RECENT, MOGADISHU, SOMALIA SHOTLIST: http://www.scribd.com/doc/130190737/Somalia-Mogadishu-Nightlife STORY: Motorists and pedestrians make their way home or run errands as darkness falls in Mogadishu - once referred to as ‘the most dangerous city in the world’. The once deserted streets of the Somali capital are now a hive of activity, with shops and restaurants doing brisk business in various parts of the city well into the night. Just two years ago, few of Mogadishu’s residents would have dared stay out past sunset as various groups battled for control of the city. But things changed dramatically here from August 2011, when the al Qaeda-linked group al Shabaab, were forced to flee their positions in the capital by the Somali National Army (SNA) and the African Union Peacekeeping Forces (AMISOM). Mohamad Mohamud Raage, owner of the popular Daaru Salaam Restaurant, is working hard to cash in on the growing numbers of people who like coming out at night to share meals with their family and friends. “We are doing our best so that this city and our businesses can progress, and we are praying that Allah will let this peace continue, because it’s this peace that allows us to make a living,” Raage said. “The reason we are still out on the streets at this time is because of the peace we’re experiencing. We come out at night, like at 9 p.m. for meals because the security situation is better than it was before and we can go home safely at anytime,” said one Daaru Salaam’s diners. Nabaad Super Market is another one of Mogadishu’s businesses that is enjoying a boom now that customers can pick up items they didn’t have time to grab during the day. “People are shopping at this time because there is security. Sometimes we are open till 11:30 or midnight because are 100 percent sure that they will be safe. We’ve forgotten the sound of bullets because we don’t hear them anymore,” said Moumin Abdi, one of Naabad’s tellers. Recently Mogadishu played host to British Diaspora singer Mohammed Hassan Hussein Lafoole, whose concert highlighted just how much the city has changed. Music and dancing was banned during al Shabaab rule. “During the troubles it would have been unusual for people to be out at this time of night. But today I can see there’s a big change and I welcome it and I hope it will continue,” said Sahra Isse, a journalist. Somalia faces many daunting challenges, but the capital’s growing nightlife is a sign that people in the country's hub are singing a new tune: one of peace, development and hope.

SCRIPT: Somali government forces with the support of African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) are on a sustained offensive against the handful of al-Shabaab bases left in the country’s Bay Region. The securing of the key towns of Dardan and Jirada-Kullow today (February 25) raises to six the number of strategic positions captured by the allied forces in less than ten days. This renewed offensive follows last week’s recovery of the towns of Aw-dheegle, Jannale and Barrire in lower Shabelle and the Jowhar airfield in Middle Shabelle. The allied forces are currently moving to secure other towns along the strategic Afgooye-Baidoa corridor, as militants from the Al Qaeda-linked terror group flee without putting up resistance. “The troops are in good shape, their moral is high, everything is going on well, we are not meeting any resistance yet from al-Shabaab, all they do when they see us moving towards them is to run away, so things are moving on well and I’m sure in a few days to come we’ll be in Buurhakaba,” said Brigadier Michael Ondoga, AMISOM’s Uganda Contingent Commander: AMISOM’s civilian component has been engaging with local leaders and administrations in the recovered districts to discuss activities that can be undertaken immediately to enhance security and protect the hard won military gains.
