  4. Less than 24 hours after the Somali Parliament gave a vote of confidence to the new lean cabinet nominated by Prime Minister Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, H.E. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni President of the Republic of Uganda paid a working visit to Mogadishu Somalia and met with his counterpart H.E. President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, accompanied by the Speaker of the Somali Parliament, Hon. Sharif Hassan Sheikh Adan, the Prime Minister, H.E. Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed. Also present at the meeting was H.E. Abdulkareem H. Jama, Minister of Information, Post & Telecommunication. President Museveni who was accompanied by officers of the UPDF and his staff congratulated the leadership of the Somali Government for the successful conclusion of the political process that culminated in the Parliament providing a vote of confidence to the new Somali Cabinet. He also assured them that the Government and People of Uganda stand by their brethren in Somalia and will continue to support them in any way they can. President Sharif thanked H.E. President Museveni for the historic visit which was the first by a head of state in close to 20 years and the constant support and sacrifice the people of Uganda make to assist their brothers in Somalia. The two Presdients discussed ways of deepening the already strong relationship between the two countries as well as the cooperating in marshalling the support necessary for the new Somali Government to fulfill its duties.

Xiin, both the parliament and cabinet is based upon this formula. I dont I agree with the arrangement but this is the law!. S
