KAMPALA, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Uganda's Makerere University Business School (MUBS) is to train the newly elected leaders of the Somali government on local government and management structures, local media reported here on Monday.
The state owned New Vision daily reported that Wasswa Balunya, MUBS vice chancellor, and Mohamed Ahmed Noor, mayor of the Somali capital Mogadishu, last week signed a memorandum of understanding geared at equipping the leaders with administrative skills and bring better administration in the war ravaged Horn of African country.
Balunya said the initiative will help the Somali people to move faster towards peace and stability.
"We shall render them any support from our institution because they are our brothers. We shall support them in putting things right, just like we did for our brothers in Rwanda after the 1994 genocide," said Balunya.
Noor said there is great need to build the capacity of administrators in the city for quick and better transformation.
The volatile country has experienced instability which has left the country's infrastructure broken down.
The recent elections in Somalia marked the end of the long drawn transitional period and heralds a new era for the war- ravaged Horn of Africa country.
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni recently said Uganda is committed to bringing sustainable peace, stability, reconciliation and development in the unstable country.
Uganda provides the bulk of the African Union peace keeping troops in Somalia.
