New President Says 20 Years Needed to Fix Somalia

Somalia’s new President Mohamed Abdullahi has been inaugurated in the capital Mogadishu, promising to restore dignity to the troubled Horn of Africa nation but warning it will take another two decades to “fix” the country.
“Multiple challenges are ahead of our government. Therefore, I am telling people that because of the limited resources we have, our achievements will be limited,” said Mohamed, also known as Farmajo on Wednesday at the ceremony, Aljazeera reported.
“For the past 26 years, there have conflicts and droughts, so it will take other 20 years to fix this country.”
The dual US-Somali citizen and former prime minister was sworn-in at a ceremony held in the highly-secured airport zone to avoid an attack by the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Shabaab group, which has threatened a “vicious war” against the new government.
