President Kaguta Museveni Wednesday paid a visit to Ugandan AMISOM contingent in Mogadishu and commended them for their diligence.
After the IGAD Heads of State Summit, the president visited the troops serving under AMISOM at the Halane Base Camp headquarters near Mogadishu International Airport.
It is the second time he is visiting Ugandan troops in Somalia.
The first time was in November 2010 when the troops were involved in a fierce battle for the liberation of Mogadishu from Al-Shabaab bandits.
By July 2011, they had driven them out of Mogadishu.
“I want to thank our troops for the good work they are doing in Somalia,” Museveni later said.
“They have helped Somalia by fighting the enemy and setting a good example to Somalis.”
