There were huge celebrations in Mogadishu as residents welcomed the election of the new Somalia President Hassan Mohamud.

 

Reports say Somalis living in Nairobi, in neighbouring Kenya, have also welcomed the news with celebrations.

Neighbouring countries such as Ethiopia have also congratulated the new president.

 

Mohamud won with 214 votes in a third round of voting against the incumbent president, Mohamed Farmajo, who got 110 votes.

 

He was sworn in shortly after the final results were announced and will serve for the next four years.

 

Mr Mohamud makes a comeback having served as Somalia’s eighth president from 2012, before Mr Farmajo defeated him in the 2017 elections.
