A member of federal parliament of Somalia stated that AMISOM forces failed to fulfill their obligations to safeguard the security of the government institutions including the federal parliament in Mogadishu. AMISOM forces were not providing any specific guard at the federal parliament building during the attack claiming that most of the killed security officers were the federal government forces.
Feisal Omar Guled said the resignation of the national security minister was not enough. “It is not something that will satisfy us and we are not satisfied,” he said. Other sources commented AMISOM should not be blamed for any neglect in a local security.
The Somali MP asked the federal government to assess the roles of AMISOM in keeping the security, their real mandate and their presence role in Somalia.
