Kenyan peacekeepers aided illegal Somalia charcoal export - U.N.

UNITED NATIONS | Sun Jul 14, 2013
(Reuters) - A confidential report by U.N. monitors accuses Kenyan soldiers in the African Union peacekeeping force in Somalia of facilitating illegal charcoal exports from the port city of Kismayu, a business that generates millions of dollars a year for Islamic militants seeking to topple the government.

The case of the failed ban on Somali charcoal outlined in the report highlights the difficulty of cutting off al Shabaab militants' funding and ensuring compliance with U.N. sanctions when there is little appetite for enforcing them on the ground.

The Kenyan military denied the allegations in the U.N. Monitoring Group's latest annual report to the Security Council's sanctions committee on Somalia and Eritrea.

The report was completed before recent clashes in Kismayu.

In that fighting, rival militias battled for control of the strategic port city after Ahmed Madobe, leader of the Ras Kamboni militia and a former Islamist warlord, became leader of the Jubaland region, which includes Kismayu, in May.

The situation remains tense though the Mogadishu government, which initially opposed Madobe, is letting him stay on as interim leader.

Is Kenya birthing a new country named Jubaland?

A Jubaland warlord backed by Kenya flew to another semi-autonomous region in Somalia and was hailed this weekend as Jubaland's president.

A row on the Horn of Africa between Somalia and Kenya over a border area inside Somalia called Jubaland took another twist -- as a former militia leader backed by Kenya but not recognized by Somalia flew to a prominent northern city and was received there as the president of Jubaland.

In recent weeks the government of Somalia has been claiming Kenya, an old ally, of quietly and tacitly creating a buffer state out of the territory of Jubaland, one that Kenya would hold sway in.

On July 1 Somali authorities said that Kenyan forces, deployed in Somalia as part of an African Union peacekeeping force, were taking sides and should leave, and that they were complicit in a small massacre in May in the Jubaland port of Kismayo that left dozens dead and some 155 wounded.

Over 70 killed in warlord battle for Somali port


Battles between rival warlords in Somalia's key southern port city of Kismayo killed at least 71 people last month, UN officials said Friday, clashes Mogadishu has accused Kenyan troops of encouraging.

"Recent fierce fighting... continues to have a profound impact on civilians and humanitarian aid work in the Lower Juba region," the UN's World Health Organisation (WHO) said, adding the clashes also left more than 300 injured in June.

"Injuries and deaths outside the hospital are estimated to be much higher but cannot be confirmed," the WHO added, which supports hospitals treating the war-wounded in Kismayo.

Analysts are concerned about tension between Kenya and Somalia over the handling of peace efforts in southern parts of the war-torn country.

This follows a diplomatic spat over three days of fighting in the port city of Kismayu. The Somalia government wrote to the African Union complaining about an alleged lull in the fight against Al-Shabaab militants in the south sector controlled by AU Mission in Somalia (Amisom) troops.

They have blamed this alleged laxity on renewed fighting between militia and forces allied to Jubaland President Ahmed Madobe.

They also accuse Kenya of obstructing efforts to bring troops in the region under a national command, taking particular exception to the arrest of a senior commander by Kenyan forces, which they say led to the fighting.

Jubaland officials have described the commander, Col Abass Ibrahim Gurey, who was allegedly moved to Dhobley by Kenya Defence Forces (KDF), as a warlord.

Analysts now say Kenya’s relationship with Somalia is bound to worsen in coming months over divergent interests in Jubaland state. A warlord ejected from Kismayu by Madobe’s troops has vowed to recapture the port city and kick out KDF with the help of the Mogadishu-based government and Al-Shabaab militants.

“Strained relations between Mogadishu and Nairobi are bad for everyone in the region,” said Mr David Shinn, an adjunct professor of international affairs at The George Washington University. “It can increase the prospect for conflict along the border, refugee flows and displaced people on both sides.”
