The government has new allies against Al Shabaab but the facts on the ground remain much the same
The Transitional Federal Government has a new component. On 15 March in Addis Ababa, the TFG signed an agreement with Ahlu Sunna wal Jama’a, the council (and militia) that administers Galgadud and other areas. It gets the right to five ministers, one minister of state, five assistant ministers, ten director generals and directors, three ambassadors and twelve other diplomatic posts, and the deputy commanders of the armed forces, police and security. ASWJ troops will become an integral part of the TFG army. A joint committee is to try to implement the agreement within a month.
