Units from the African Union peacekeeping troops (AMISOM) have reached Cadaado town, the provisional capital for Galmudug state.

Somali government officials have confirmed to the local media that Djiboutian and Burundian soldiers serving under the AMISOM umbrella have arrived Cadaado town in Galguduud region, to safeguard the upcoming Somali election process. 

"AMISOM troops were welcomed by the state officials and subsequently made temporary outposts in the town. 

They will ensure security in the town and voting centers during the parliamentary elections,” according to a military official. 

This comes following a recent visit by senior Somali military officials and Somalia’s electoral body who discussed with Galmudug authority on the upcoming election arrangements in the state. 

 However, the arrival of AMISOM troops in Cadaado town coincide with heightened tensions between Galmudug and Puntland, as both frequently clashed over disputed areas in Galkayo town in the past weeks. Earlier, Puntland government has accused Somali government of fueling tensions in Mudug region and announced it had apprehended scores of Somalia’s National Intelligence and Security Agency (NISA) soldiers who were deployed to fight along with Galmudug militias against Puntland forces.
