CS Amina offers Uhuru real time translation during Farmajo inauguration

By NJ Correspondent:

Foreign Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed seated behind President Uhuru translated the speeches for him real time, a luxury his peers couldn’t enjoy.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has today enjoyed warm reception in Mogadishu where he graced the inauguration of Somalia’s recently elected President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo.

Uhuru’s speech laden with praise for Somalia and its leaders as well as reassurances of more collaboration between the two countries was met with several rounds of applause by his hosts.

Unlike his peers who found it difficult to follow proceedings due to the fact that it was mostly done in the Somali language, Uhuru was at home since Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohamed who sat a row behind him offered him real time translation of proceedings.

It was therefore not surprising to see him seated until conclusion of the function. Ethiopian Prime Minister Haile Mariam Desalegn left midway through the event.

Majority Leader Aden Duale was also in President Uhuru’s delegation.
