P.s. I must admit I didn't expect this.

No one expected this. How leaky Soomaali governments are - regional amd otherwise - this was completely out of no where especially considering this might have been ongoing for months.

I say once again good for madaxweynaha; it means no cushy plan B foreign country to run to when the challenges become harder. He is committed.

Good on him but I think this has something to do with not being able to attend UN head of states assembly as an American passport holder.  Plus September is a month away.  I could be wrong but it's a good example nonetheless.

Can a US citizen become a president in another country?

The president of Lithuania was a long-time resident of Hinsdale, Illinois; however, he renounced US citizenship to become president.

The King of Thailand, who died recently, was born in Massachusetts, and was probably a US citizen for this reason.

Eamon deValera was born in New York, and was therefore a US citizen. He eventually became prime minister, and then president, of Ireland. I can’t find anything suggesting that he renounced US citizenship, and in fact, it is possible that his American background is what saved him from execution after a 1916 rebellion against the British.

The new president of Somalia is apparently a US citizen.

Golda Meier was a US citizen, although she became prime minister, not president, of Israel.

The president of Guyana (who was the wife of an earlier president, who died) was from the US, and must have been a US citizen - whether she remained one when she became president of Guyana, I do not know.

Boris Johnson was a US citizen, but he may have renounced.

So I think it has probably happened several times, although it’s not always easy to determine the US citizenship status of some of the possible candidates.
