The troops aremandated to support the Somali National Forces in the fight againstthe Al Qaeda linked extremist group al Shabaab.Burundian troops first deployed in Somalia in 2007, at the height of street battles, mortar fire and suicide bombings in the capitalMogadishu. They fought along side troops from Uganda andeventually forced the al Shabaab insurgents out of Mogadishu in2011. Two years on and the Islamist extremists al Shabaab have lost asting of towns and cities they once controlled in south-centralSomalia paving to way for improved security and an internationallyrecognised Federal government.Welcoming the troops and touring of their bases in Baidoa thecapital of the Bay region, the Burundi Chief of Defence Force, MajorGeneral Prime Niyongabo reminded the troops of how important arole they are playing to bring place and stability to Somalia and theregion.Major General Niyongabo had himself served under AMISOM inSomalia as the Burundian contingent commander, as he is amazedat the progress achieved.“There are many changes from the time I was here as the BurundianContingent Commander if you compare the current situation.” SaidMajor General Niyongabo, “There has been a very big improvementin peace and security situation. ”
