Prime Minister of Somalia, Omar Abdirashid Ali Sharmarke meets with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the Unite

Ending the crisis in Yemen is crucial to prevent Islamic State jihadists from shoring up Somalia’s weakened Shebab, Somalia’s prime minister said Monday.

Prime Minister Omar Sharmarke told a special session of the UN Security Council on Somalia that the Shebab’s recent pledges of allegiance to IS are “not to be taken lightly.”

“Resolution of the crisis in Yemen is crucial,” he said.

“Such will go a long way in keeping Al-Shebab from accruing support from ISIS, using Yemen as a conduit or launching pad.”

The Shebab, meaning “youth” in Arabic, emerged out of an insurgency against Ethiopia, whose troops entered Somalia in a 2006 US-backed invasion to topple the Islamic Courts Union that was then controlling the capital Mogadishu.

Since their rout from Mogadishu in mid-2011, the Shebab have been significantly weakened, but several hotel attacks including a car bombing on the Sahafi hotel this month have highlighted the ongoing threat.

“Complex attacks against hotels are now an indication that though Somalia and its international partners have won the battles against Al-Shebab, they have yet to be demolished,” said Sharmarke.

Last month, Somalia’s president called on Shebab fighters to surrender amid reports some factions had shifted allegiance from Al-Qaeda to IS.

Sharmarke cited the Shebab’s “recent proclamation of allegiance to ISIS” as a worrisome sign and said Somalia “cannot afford to have a space for ISIS to exploit”.

The prime minister called for international support to build up the security forces, which are backed by African Union troops.

Yemen has been engulfed in turmoil since a Saudi-led coalition launched air strikes eight months ago to push back an advance by Huthi rebels and restore the authority of the president.

IS fighters carried out attacks in the southern Yemeni city of Aden last month, raising fears that the group was seizing on the recent turmoil to expand its foothold in Yemen.

The United Nations has been trying for months to get peace talks between the Saudi-backed Yemeni government and the Huthi rebels off the ground, but no date has been set for the negotiations.

Voters in the self-proclaimed republic of Somaliland are heading to the polls on May, 31 to choose their member of parliament for the first time since 2005.

Somaliland broke off from mainland Somalia after the regime of Siad Barre in 1991.

The 5.2 Million citizens of Somaliland will be making yet another stab at global recognition as some 1.3 million voters head to the polls to choose 82 members of parliament and 247 local councils.

An election whose measure of democracy Somaliland hopes to use in its quest to certify its sovereignty.

Somaliland’s three political parties in the polls are opposition politicians Faisal Warabe’s UCID, Wadani led by another opposition leader Abdirahman Erye and President Muse Bihi Kulmiye party.

The elections is observed by over a hundred international observers including Uganda’s former opposition leader, Kizza Besigye and ex-president of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Korma.

”Our visit to the headquarters of the Somaliland National Electoral Commission left us with a good impression about the Commission’s preparedness to conduct peaceful and credible elections,” said in a Twitter post.

The elections are taking place in six regions of Somaliland, namely Awdal, Sahil, Marodi-Jeeh, Toghdeer, Sanaag and Sool.

“We agreed that the country should hold elections as soon as possible and that any form of extension should be abolished,” read part of the joint statement by HirShabelle and Galmudug.

Southwest leader Abdiaziz laftagaren also opposed the term extension of the President just an hour after Galmudug and HirShabelle released a joint statement.

The move by the three regional states allied to President was welcomed by Somali Prime Minister Mohamed Hussein Roble who also instructed the military commanders to pull back forces to their locations and barracks.

“I would like to welcome the press statements made by Galmudug and HirShabelle federal states, ” PM Roboe said in a statement.

“I call on the FMS states of Puntland and Jubaland and Benadir region to fully commit to a peaceful process in our efforts to hold free and inclusive election, ” he added.

United Nations, United Kingdom, United States and opposition leaders including former President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud commended the move by the regional states.

“The UN in Somalia noting statements by Qoorqqor, Ali Gudlawe, PM Roble and others recalls int’l partners position: consensus is vital for any electoral process; only 17 September model can be endorsed by FGS and all FMS; all parties must reject violence and resume dialogue, ” the United Nations said.

The development comes as families in some parts of Mogadishu fleed from their residences and moved to other district followings clashes.

Somali Gov’t Warns Al-Shabaab & ISIS Will Capitalize On SNA Faction Clashes.

Somali National Security Minister Hassan Hundubey has warned opposition groups to be wary of “unknown elements” including Al-Shabaab and Daesh who might seek to use the current crisis to inflict harm to the public.

Speaking to the media on Tuesday said that the government may take action to confront people with the “behaviour of militias” who are taking advantage of the situation.

“The government has enough troops to take control of the city. It is Ramadan, but more actions need to be taken to prevent it.” mr. Hundebey said.

”The reason the prime minister called for dialogue is that the government does not want the fighting to affect the residence,” he added.

The remarks by the interior minister come hours after the international partners strongly condemned the outbreak of violence in the capital.

“We are alarmed especially by the emerging fragmentation of the Somali National Army along clan lines, which detracts from its primary task of combating Al Shabab and protecting the Somali population. Use of security forces for the pursuit of political objectives is unacceptable” the statement read in part.

As tensions increase in Mogadishu following Sunday clashes between government soldiers and those who were against President Farmaajo’s two years term extension.
