Jubbaland agrees Kenya to lead war on Al Shabaab

The president of Jubbaland Interim Administration Ahmed Madobe gave an olive branch to Kenyan Defense forces in his region to lead offensive against Al Shabaab.

Jubbaland leader is in Nairobi, to meet with Kenyan government officials on the new military strategy to push Al Shabaab militants out of middle and Lower Jubba regions.

Reliable Sources at the meeting in Nairobi, told Radio Shabelle that Madobe and Kenyan government have agreed to end their differences over the military operations in Jubbaland.

Early reports suggest that Jubbaland leader Ahmed Madobe shifted the leading command of the anti-al shabaab war to Ethiopian troops of AMISOM contingent.

Jubbaland state president has been a close ally to Kenya for nearly 10 years in the fight against Al Shabaab in Lower and Middle Jubba regions of Southern Somalia.

A dispute between both sides have emerged after Jubbaland leader has asked Ethiopian government to help his administration in the liberation of his territory from Al Shabaab.
