Somali PM vows to pay salaries for SNA soldiers

The Prime Minister of Somalia Hassan Ali Khaire has announced that his Federal government will pay regular payments for the country’s National Army (SNA).

While addressing integrated troops at a military base outside Kismayo, PM Khaire said his administration will give first priority to pay the forces in fight against Al shabaab.

The Prime minister ordered his deputy and the defense minister to pay the salaries swiftly, to boost the morale of troops who are sacrificing their lives to the country.

Somali National army soldiers had not been paid for months in the past, as the African Union forces get their payments monthly by the European Union (EU).

The PM’s remarks came after his cabinet ministers held their weekly meeting in Kismayo, the capital of Jubbaland state, first time outside the capital since he took the oath of the office last March.
