Farmajo heads to Uganda after dropping term extension

MOGADISHU, Somalia – The outgoing Somali president Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo is all set to depart for Uganda in the coming hours, just barely two weeks after dropped his two-year illegal term extension.

KON’s Somali language service has learned from credible sources privy to the trip that Farmajo will join African leaders expected to attend the swearing-in of Uganda’s re-elected President Yoweri Museveni.

Dozens of heads of state and world leaders have been invited to participate in attend the inaugural ceremony which is slated for May 12. Uganda's long-time President has been re-elected on January 17.

He was declared election winner of the race amid accusations of vote fraud by his main rival candidate Bobi Wine, a former pop star turned politician in one of the world’s most repressive countries.

The sources added that Farmajo and his delegation will touch down in Kampala next Tuesday, May 11, a day before the culmination of the holy month of Ramadan.

Farmajo, whose term in office expired last February in upcoming elections in Somalia is likely to meet with some African leaders attending the inauguration to ask for support in the re-election bid.

Museveni, who won the election in Uganda for the sixth time in a row, has ruled the country since 1986 with iron fist, becoming one of the longest leaders in the African continent.
