Premier Hamza Abdi Barre discusses why, regardless of the worldwide help for the military, al-Shabab stays highly effective.
For nearly 20 years, Somali forces, backed by the worldwide group, have been preventing al-Shabab.
However regardless of worldwide help, the armed group stays influential within the south and centre of Somalia.
Now, the federal government is launching a sweeping offensive to retake al-Shabab territory. President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud is personally main the struggle, however that isn’t the one problem going through the federal government.
Lengthy years of drought, political divisions and the rise of autonomous areas pose vital issues.
These are among the subjects the Somali prime minister, Hamza Abdi Barre, talks to Al Jazeera about.
