Mogadishu — Somalia's newly elected cabinet ministers have been sworn in today in Mogadishu during a colorful ceremony held at the presidential compound in Mogadishu, Somali capital.

The new sworn in cabinet includes Fozia Hajji Aden, female foreign minister that is now in neighboring Djibouti for ministerial meeting and she was absent from the swearing ceremony on Thursday.

However, 10 ministers are now in place as the assistant ministers are yet on the process to be appointed by Somali PM Abdi Farah Shirdon.
