Reprint | | Print |

MOGADISHU - After his first year as president of Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud is still grappling with a lack of service delivery, corruption, and limited financial resources.
 
According to analysts, he has also had to contend with the Islamist extremist group Al-Shabaab, which waged a number of recent terrorist attacks in Mogadishu and he faces a growing disillusionment among Somalis.

Abdi Aynte from the Heritage Institute for Policy Studies, says Mohamudís Six Pillar Policy, which was meant to bring security, stability, economic recovery and service delivery has been ambitious, but public service delivery is practically non-existent in the country. (END//2013)
