“AMISOM condoles with the people of Somali and Somali Government for the death of Somali Parliamentarian Abdiaziz Isaak Mursal’s. AMISOM will work with Somali Security forces to ensure the perpetrators are brought to justice,” the peace enforcement body said in a statement seen by Chimpreports today.

Earlier on Monday, Hon Isaq Mohamed Riino was killed in a car bomb explosion in Mogadishu.

The horrific and deplorable killings of two members of parliament have shocked the nation.

Sending his condolences Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed, said the hunt for the perpetrators will continue until those responsible face justice.

“These acts of terror only serve to inflict indiscriminate violence, distress and grief on innocent people. Taking a human life is abhorrent and these terrorists have destroyed an innocent family and stricken them with grief.

The use of terror will not derail us from the progress made in securing Somalia, it only serves to unite and strengthen our resolve to defeat all forms of terrorism and violence.”
