Somalia’s Kiss Of Life

For 22 years, the sounds dominating Kismayu were gunfire, warplanes and the wailing of the dying and the mourning.

The Somali city was a theater of deadly battles for the control of its lucrative port trade since the ouster of President Mohammed Siad Barre in 1991.

But the Kenya Defence Forces expedition to Somali has routed the Al Shabaab militia from Kismayu and breathed life to the once dying city.

Judy Kosgei reports on this transformation in our first part of “Somalia’s kiss of life” series.
