Uganda is to open an embassy in Mogadishu, Somalia at the end of this month in a move that further raises confidence the country is headed towards further stability after years of devastating war.

According to the State Minister for Foreign Affairs Henry Okello Oryem, Uganda joins Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Turkey who already have embassies in the Horn of Africa country.

According to Oryem, Uganda is making the move given the stable government of President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud which promises more peace in a country that has been scared by decades of conflict.

By the end of this month, the embassy will be open with Prof. Sam Turyamuhika, an academic and Kampala based researcher as ambassador and Major General Nathan Mugisha as his deputy.
