All enquiries to news@auunist.org CREDIT REQUIRED: AU/UN IST LANGUAGE: ENGLISH/SOMALI/NATS DATELINE: 10/11 JANUARY 2013 MOGADISHU, SOMALIA STORY: Night has fallen in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. For years, residents in the city - and in many other parts of the country - would watch the sun set with increasing fear that militant group Al Shabaab would use the cover of darkness to wage war. But 18 months ago, the extremist group lost their stranglehold on Somalia’s nerve centre to the Somali National Security Forces who are bolstered by troops with the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM). These men, members of a special AMISOM’s police unit, are here to augment the efforts of Somalia’s Police Force (SPF) as they work to return law and order to the country’s biggest city, after more than two decades of civil strife. Residents say any inconvenience experienced during the frequent SPF security checks are inconsequential given the dramatic improvement in recent months. SOUNDBITE (English) Jamma Mohamed, Somali Returnee ""I am just visiting, I am around now for a week, there's no problem. If you do the job, the job must be done, so the security we feel now better in the night so I see no problem." Despite al Shabaab's retreat from Mogadishu in August 2011, the al-Qaeda affiliated group still carries out sporadic attacks in the capital. With training and backup provided by the 140 Ugandan and Nigerian AMISOM police officers, the SPF say they can patrol Mogadishu's battle-scarred streets with increasing confidence. SOUNDBITE (Somali) Major Abdi Mohamed Abdille, SPF Police Commander "You can see the changes in that our troops are out at night in uniform. Previously they used to hide their uniform when the sun sets, there was no peace, now we're searching cars, homes and recovering various items. It's a tangible change." On this night, the joint patrol happens upon a moonlit game of football being played on an empty side-street - a clear sign that things have changed in Mogadishu. Al Shabaab had - at one point - banned football. It's a light moment shared by both the SPF and their AMISOM counterparts who typically spend about six hours per night doing their rounds. SOUNDBITE (English) Ikenna Ikere, Nigerian FPU Commander, AMISOM "At each point, the place they know is a hot zone, we will stop, patrol, then we will give them a buffer, form a buffer for them. They will go to black spots, search the place, if they see anybody, they will arrest. At each junction that is a hot place, they will stop, conduct some search, after that we will continue our patrol." The SPF still has a lot of road to cover before it can operate independently, AMISOM is committed to helping them get there by providing training and operational support but even more assistance is needed urgently in terms of weapons, equipment, vehicles etc. Tonight however, there's time for a bit of dancing in the street, before the joint patrol moves on, because the journey to lasting peace and stability to Somalia has begun in earnest.

                  With AMISOM’s support, the Somali National Forces have pushed the al-Shabaab militant group out of most major urban centres in southern Somalia, including the capital Mogadishu and the port cities of Marka and Kismayo, as well as many other towns and centres. These developments have created the best chance Somalia has had in a generation to achieve a lasting peace and to establish legitimate and representative institutions. The efforts and achievements of AMISOM and the Somali National Security Forces (SNSF) were extensively covered. The photographs shown here were selected from thousands of pictures generated this year as AMISOM and the SNSF carried out their peacekeeping and humanitarian operations.

STORY: Members of the AMISOM Police contingent working in Somalia have donated food items and clothing to members of the blind community living in Mogadishu, as part of a gesture to support those with disability. The AMISOM police force is mandated to work with the Somali Police Force (SPF) to mentor, train and advice with the aim of reforming the Somali Police that is now tasked with providing security for areas around Mogadishu and other parts of the country that have been liberated from the al Shabaab militant group. The decision to lend a helping hand to the blind of Mogadishu came about through their interaction with community as they patrol the city improving security. Individual members of the AMISOM police unit put money together to buy various items including maize flower, rice, beans, milk and assorted items for the children. SOUNDBITE (English), Benson Oyoo Nyeko Deputy Police Commissioner AMISOM. “ We are here to work with the Somali Police to train mentor and also to provide security. But we are part and parcel of the society we see for ourselves what is going on, the suffering so AU police force have decided to make a contribution out of their own will to support the suffering people of this country. The items were presented for distribution to the Somali Women Development Centre (SWDC) who supports women, vulnerable child and the blind. SOUNDBITE (English), Zahra Mohamed Ahmed, Legal advisor Somali Women Development Centre “ Today we have to start building our country and we need to go together with our African brothers. They have given their blood. This is Voluntary they are helping the Somali people.” Receiving the items on behalf of the visually impaired was the chairman of the Blind People Association of Mogadishu, Abdi Kadir who thanked the policemen and women for their gifts. SOUNDBITE (Somali) Abdi Kadir, Chairman of the Blind people association Mogadishu. “ My view is that this is good because they came here for security but they added with a charity job. We hope that they will do something to solve our own problems (blind people) as much as they possibly can.” The focus of the AMISOM police unit is to build the capacity of the Somali Police Force and provide security for the people of Somalia. The unit has individual police officers (IPO’s) from Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Uganda. They also have two specialised units known as Formed Police Units made up of two groups of 140 men from Uganda and Nigeria. The units are playing a crucial role in bridging this gap to improve security through Public Order Management, VIP escorts and providing protection to other AU Individual Police Officers (IPO’s) who are training and mentoring their Somali Police counterparts in modern day policing.
