Concern That Al-Shabaab is Gaining Ground in Mogadishu

There has been concern among Somalia watchers that the African Union Mission to Somalia has not liberated any new territories since President Farmaajo came to power two years ago. They claim that the killing in August of Mogadishu mayor Abdirahman Omar Osman by one his staff members, shows how Al-Shabaab has infiltrated government departments and security agencies, reports Fred Oluch for The East Africa.
