The African Union (AU), has decried the growing violent crisis in Somalia.
It, therefore, called on Somali stakeholders to refrain from acts that might jeopardize peace and security in the country.
The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Mr Moussa Faki Mahamat, in a statement, also tasked political leaders
to work together to find a consensual solution that will break the current political stalemate.
He expressed deep concern at the deteriorating security and political situation in Mogadishu, which puts all the gains made in Somalia in the last decade at risk.
The Chairperson encourages the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS), the Federal Member States (FMS) and other stakeholders to continue with their ongoing dialogue, guided by the spirit of compromise with a view to arriving at a consensual agreement, including on all outstanding election-related matters.
He urged the Somali leadership and the entire Somali political class to act in the interests of Somalia as a whole, rather than narrow partisan political interests.
“The people of Somalia have suffered for too long, and the current violence poses a serious threat to the Somali transition plan (STP), at the precise moment it is being finalized,” the statement also observed.
Mr Mahamat stresses the vital importance of holding free, fair, timely and credible elections, along the lines of the 17 September Agreement.
To this end, he called on all the relevant Somali stakeholders to refrain from undertaking unilateral measures that might further deepen the current political crisis and undermine efforts to effectively confront and degrade Al Shabaab and other terrorist groups.
The Chairperson reiterated that the AU through AMISOM will continue to uphold its mandate to support the FGS and the Somali people in their quest for peace and stability.
