As AMISOM, we are committed in giving them support in restoring calm in Somalia. We congratulate them in this successful operation which will bring more peace in Mogadishu,” said Brig Ondoga.

Brig Ondoga added that this was a manifestation of the ever improving capability of the Somali Forces, adding that he is confident that one day, the Somali themselves will be able to take full charge of their own security.

This incident comes three days after Ugandan and Somali Forces captured from Sokohola 11 high explosive bombs meant for terrorism.

The Thursday night operation now adds to over 30 explosives, 16 submachine guns and 14 pistols captured from Sokohola by AU and Somali forces in two months.

Ugandan troops have been backing Somalia soldiers to take full charge of their security, having trained them and helped in pounding Al Shabaab from their Mogadishu and other strategic towns.

Sokohola, a Mogadishu suburb has been a concentration of Al Shabaab cells terrorizing civilians around Mogadishu town.

AMISOM is among others mandated by the UN security council to monitor the security situation in areas of operation and to provide technical assistance to stabilization efforts including helping to build capabilities of the Somali Security forces who will form the core of a rejuvenated Somali security Forces.

UPDF spokesperson Col Felix Kulayigye recently told Chimpreports that Somalia would be completely pacified by the close of the year.
