Former Somali President Returns Home

Former Somali president Sheikh Sharif Sh. Ahmed arrived Thursday afternoon  in his home country, nearly 4 years after losing office to Hassan Sh. Mohamud

Sheikh Sharif Sh. Ahmed basked in the warmth of an enthusiastic Somali crowd Thursday as thousands came from all across the Mogadishu to welcome him home after 4 years since he lost the election.

I may have left Somalia (in 2012) but Somalia never left me,” Sharif said as many in the crowd of about 20,000 waved cardboard red, Welcome home distributed by the event’s organizers. “And I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”

Many people walked from the airport to his home in the capital to show how much they missed his leadership and chanted Sheikh Sharif for president in the 2016 elections.
