The President of the Interim Southwest Administration, Shariif Hassan Sheikh Adan on Sunday extended amnesty to Al-Shabaab fighters who renounced terrorism and violence.

Speaking during his visit to Barawe, the president said his government will not punish Al-Shabaab fighters who laid down arms. 

"Our amnesty offer to the youths who have joined Al-Shabaab remains, and we are also encouraging others to do the same and renounce violence and join us in the task of state building,” said Adan.

It was the first time the interim administration had offered amnesty to Al-Shabaab fighters. 

The president also said that the hit and run tactics of the terrorist group in the state will not stop the ongoing security efforts in securing the state.

"Southwest administration does not want to revenge, however we plan to invite and welcome anyone who renounces violence and the terrorist group.” 

Last year, the Federal Government of Somalia also announced amnesty for Al-Shabaab fighters. 

A reintegration into society has been taking place for the ones who heeded the offer and surrendered arms.
