Move to re-open Kenya embassy in Somalia lauded

10 March 2014, 21:02 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The move to re-open the Kenyan embassy in Somali has been lauded as brave and an indicator of the country's big brother role in the region as a whole.

Kenya is finalising moves to have the embassy in Mogadishu up and running.

Deputy president William Ruto and His Somali counterpart announced in February that the embassy would be opened to show Kenya's solidarity with the Somali situation.

" We need to show that there is hope in Somalia and that we are with them in this time of need, Ruto said.

And with efforts to lift Somalia ongoing, Kenya's special envoy to IGAD Mohammed Affey has commended the move to tahe the embassy to Somalia despite the insecurity in the country.

He said that it is a great effort from the country's leadership to take the step which he described as bold.

" It is a move that confirms Kenya's efforts to be a leader in the region and it must be lauded considering the security risk involved, he said.

And despite the Somali presidential palace being attacked recently, he exuded confidence that everything would be fine.

" Things will go to plan because the highest security measures will be taken, he added.
