MOGADISHU (Sh. M. Network)- Brig. Paul Lokech, Ugandan Contingent Commander of AMISOM denied Friday some reports claiming that Al shabab fighters regained the control of KM-50 area located in Lower Shabelle region overnight.
“Until now AMISOM forces are controlling the area and the situation is calm,” said Ugandan Contingent Commander of AMISOM Brig. Paul Lokech during an interview with Shabelle Media Network.
When asked about who is now controlling the area, he replied: “Our forces are patrolling KM-50 location and the airport and Al shabab has never attempted to attack KM-50 settlement since AU forces have captured the area a month ago.”
Mr.Lokech, said AMISOM forces along with Somali national army are in the port city of Merca and there is no threat in Km-50 vicinity. Somali troops backed by African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) forces, seized control of KM-50, on August 4, after Al shabab withdrew.
