Amb. Gamal has been at the forefront in efforts to better the lives of Somali refugees in Kenya.

Somalia’s ambassador to Kenya Gamal Mohamed Hassan was among the ministers named by the country’s newly appointed Minister in Mogadishu on Tuesday.

Hassan was appointed the Minister for planning and international relations in the 26 member cabinet largely composed of technocrats some of whom served in the previous administrations.

Hassan assumed office at the busy Nairobi embassy in August 2015 after his predecessor Mohamed Nur Americo stepped down to concentrate on his presidential bid.

Somalia’s Nairobi embassy is one of the busiest embassies of the horn of Africa nation since the Kenyan capital is a regional hub that is home to many UN agencies and other international organizations and embassies that have presence in Somalia.

The embassy has played an active role in the management of refugee affairs in Kenya, which is home to the largest Somali refugees in the World leaving in the Dadaab refugee camps.

Veteran journalist and immediate Somali representative to the UN Yussuf Garad was named the foreign affairs minister.

President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo was elected on the platform of change and recently named little know Hassan Ali Kayre as the Prime Minister.
