Somali president departs for UN gathering in New York


Somali President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo has departed the country’s capital, Mogadishu for annual United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Somali head of state will attend his first UNGA Assembly since taking office on February 2017.

President Farmajo is scheduled to join world leaders in addressing the 74th session later this month.

Abdullahi Farmajo renounced his US citizenship in August after immigration departments and legal experts from both countries are closely working together to complete the process.
