Somalia rejects John Mahama; questions his impartiality and competence as a mediator

The Federal Republic of Somalia has rejected the appointment of Ghana’s former president John Dramani Mahama as African Union’s (AU) special envoy to help mediate that country’s political impasse.

In a letter trending on the various media platforms and seen by accramail.com and confirmed by sources at the AU, Mahamed Abdirazak, Somalia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said Mahama has “extensive links” with Kenya, and that the country will no longer support him [Mahama] in his new role.

“It is indeed surprising that a candidate with extensive links with Kenya’s leadership has been chosen by the AU to facilitate talks on a political impasse partly engineered by those Kenyan leadership has supported,” the letter stated.

“Given the politically sensitive nature of the task of a high representative in any case, I am certain you will appreciate the importance of any candidate for such a post to be seen as impartial and competent without any links to the region,” it added.

“I hereby notify the African Union of the formal withdrawal of support by the Federal Government of Somalia for the AU High Representative for Somalia.”

Nana Addo cuts sod for the construction of $30 million Pan African Heritage World Museum

Construction of $30 million Pan African Heritage World Museum: President of the Republic of Ghana H.E. Nana Akufo-Addo has led a sod-cutting ceremony held in Accra for the construction of The Pan African Heritage World museum, which is said to be the biggest in Africa.

The Pan African Heritage World Museum, when completed, according to the President, will provide a resting place for all the looted artifacts housed in foreign museums in Europe and elsewhere.

“The museum is certainly an innovative pan-Africanism project and the government is accordingly supporting its development. The precise state of the support government will provide is the subject of ongoing discussions between the executive council and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, and the results will be fully publicized.”

“I am glad that when completed, this project will provide education in the museum’s gallery for visitors to learn more about the history, cultures, indigenous ideals of our ancestors who demonstrated their resolve to protect our environment,” the President said.

Speaking at the sod-cutting ceremony, Akufo-Addo urged locals in the area not to be an impediment to the construction of the museum.

“I urge you, residents of the area and those within this immediate catchment area to be mindful of the fact that you will be the ultimate beneficiaries of this project, so please, do not put any impediments in the way of investors or contractors. There should be a cordial relationship among you,” he added.

The museum, which will be the biggest in Africa, was the idea of Kojo Yankah, past President of the Pan-African Historical Theatre Festival (PANAFEST) and founder of the African University College of Communications.

The design of the Museum is shaped as a Horn which is synonymous with a trumpet which is a musical instrument often used in religious ceremonies.

It is expected to be completed in July 2023.
