AMISOM and FGS commence audit of companies and organisations

Mogadishu, 15 August 2019 - The Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and the
African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) yesterday commenced a physical audit of
companies and organisations operating within the Aden Abdulle International Airport
protected area.

The audit, targeting companies and organisations contracted by the United Nations
and AMISOM, is aimed at ensuring the private entities operate within the laws of the
country.
“The Somali government is conducting the audit for accountability and transparency
purposes and to make sure that every company is operating within the laws of the
country,” said the audit team leader Dahir Salat, who is also the senior operations
advisor to the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Mr. Salat said the audit exercise will be conducted every three months to ensure the
Somali government keeps an up-to-date database of all entities operating within the
airport’s protected area also referred to as the green zone.

“This is the second joint FGS, AMISOM and UN audit creating a database on
individuals, companies and organisations working in the airport camp also known as
‘Halane’” he added.

The inspection involved verification of land lease agreements, tax records, vehicles
owned, number of workers and waste disposal mechanisms among others.

AMISOM Head of Safety and Security, Micah Ncube said the exercise will help
AMISOM, the UN and the Federal Government of Somalia to account for the number
of organisations, companies and workers operating within the green zone.

“This exercise will also help us to properly document the land allocation, lease
agreement and usage of land inside the Mogadishu International Airport,” said Ncube.

The audit is also aimed at enhancing security within the green zone by ensuring
companies and workers operate within the rules and regulations set by the federal
government.
