SOUNDBITE: (ENGLISH) BRIG. GEN. MICHAEL KABANGO, AMISOM SECTOR ONE COMMANDER
“The humanitarian situation in 2008 was dire. There were no hospitals to talk about. There was gross insecurity and the capital Mogadishu was isolated from the rest of the country. There was a lot of lawlessness in the areas outside, which would not allow any humanitarian activity. The only hospital that we had at the time that was functional was our Level 2 hospital here in the airport.”

SOUNDBITE: (ENGLISH) BRIG. GEN. MICHAEL KABANGO, AMISOM SECTOR ONE COMMANDER
“After 2011/2012 Al-Shabaab was expelled from Mogadishu. Therefore there was a peace dividend that allowed humanitarian activities to spring up. So, Mogadishu became a spring board for humanitarian activity. As time went on, we (AMISOM troops) have opened up Main Supply Routes such as Mogadishu-Baidoa; Mogadishu-Barawe; Mogadishu-Jowhar and Mogadishu to Belet Weyne, allowing humanitarian aid to flow”.

“The war we are fighting against the Al-Shabaab is counter insurgency. The population is the most important element. If we don’t take care of them, then they don’t need us. We need to make sure that they cooperate with us and the only way you can do that is by showing an understanding of their needs.”

SOUNDBITE: (ENGLISH) BRIG. GEN. MICHAEL KABANGO, AMISOM SECTOR ONE COMMANDER
“The job we do is a service for humanity. Somebody has to do it. If we do not do it, imagine the numbers of people who are at risk of dying. So somebody has to do it.”
